Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has hit the roads on Monday protesting alleged attack on Roopa Ganguly by Trinamool activists.
The BJP has staged a protest on the road itself to condemn the attacks made on Roopa allegedly by TMC men. They would start their rally from the Hazra crossing to Kalighat towards Mamata Banerjee’s house. Top BJP leaders including BJP president Rahul Sinha, BJP state president Dilip Ghosh and BJP leader Locket Chatterjee are present in the protest.
They have decided to march from Hazra to Kalighat where they would submit a memorandum to TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee. A huge police force is present to see that no political clash breaks out. Transport services have disrupted and several school and college students are facing immense transport problems.
BJP National Secretary Rahul Sinha said that if such attacks on BJP did not stop, then they would stage massive protests in future.
BJP State President Dilip Ghosh threatened to not allow Mamata to taker oath on May 27 if such attacks do not stop on BJP workers. They would stage a protest at the Red Road. He said that the TMC MPs will go to Delhi from Kolkata and he being Dilip Ghosh will see to it how do they return back to Kolkata. He also said that they would meet TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee to inform her about the terror going on in Bengal post results on May 19. He added that it is the responsibility and duty of the government to stop terrorism. He even said that it would be better that the police does not stop them from reaching out to Mamata, instead they should stop terrorism going on in Bengal. But the rally which tried to march towards Mamata’s residence was stopped by the police at the Asutosh Mukherjee road.
Roopa Ganguly was attacked allegedly by TMC goons in Kakdwip’s Majhipara village on her way back after visiting an injured BJP worker on Sunday. With heavy injuries in her head and waist, she was rushed to the Diamond Harbour hospital. Her car was ransacked too. 12 other members of the party were also injured and were admitted to the hospital. Roopa Ganguly had accused TMC men of assaulting her.
Post poll results are still continuing in Bengal. Bengal has been witnessing several incidents in many districts of Bengal. In some cases, CPM offices were set ablaze while in other cases clashes broke out between CPM-TMC goons. The TMC goons have been accused almost in every case. CPM leader Surya Kant Mishra and President of the Congress Party, Adhir Ranjan Choudhury are scheduled to meet the Governor for the same issue. They have said that there is no question of breaking the CPM-Congress alliance. They even added that the Bengal people have clearly represented their choice of the alliance through the assembly polls.
