Tarakeswar tense after National Flag found lying on the ground
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress leaders from Hooghly's Tarakeswar alleged that BJP-backed goons have dislodged the National Flag from the top of a Panchayat office and dumped it on the ground.
Trinamool Congress district leaders also alleged that some goons put up a BJP flag on top of the Panchayat office. The district BJP leaders have, however, denied the allegation saying that it was a handiwork of the Trinamool Congress workers instead. The BJP leaders also said that they never dumped the Tricolour.
The incident has triggered tension in the area. It was said that Naita Malpaharpur Gram Panchayat, run by Trinamool Congress, had the National Flag on the top of the building.
In order to capture the Gram Panchayat the BJP leaders are carrying out hooliganism, alleged the Trinamool Congress leaders.
Some local residents spotted the National Flag lying on the ground on Sunday morning. After being informed, police reached the spot and brought the situation under control.
The district police have started a detailed probe into the incident. The police officers have assured that stern action will be taken against those who will be found responsible for the incident.
