Kolkata: Condemning the attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP George Baker in West Bengal’s Burdwan’s, the saffron party on Sunday said the state has been converted into a land of hoodlums under the Trinamool Congress (TMC) Government.
“West Bengal, under the TMC Government, has been converted into a land of hoodlums. The TMC goons are not only attacking the party workers, but they also don’t even spare senior leaders of the Parliament. We really condemn that the senior leader of the BJP was mercilessly beaten up,” BJP leader C.K. Bose reportedly told.
He further demanded West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s resignation as State Home Minister.

“Do you think the Home Minister of West Bengal deserves to remain in her position? She should immediately put in her resignation. Such behaviour from the TMC goons, supported by the TMC Government, is not going to be tolerated by the peace-loving citizens of Bengal any longer,” Bose added.
BJP MP George Baker and four other party workers were injured on Saturday in an alleged attack by TMC workers at Kalna town of Burdwan district.
Baker and the other injured were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Later he was discharged after first aid while the others were admitted to the hospital.
