Factional Feud Over Contract Allocation Turns Violent In Dumdum


Kolkata: A clash between two factions of Trinamool over the allocation of contracts for development projects in North Dum Dum Municipality’s Birati in North 24-Parganas into a battlefield on Wednesday.

The nearly day-long clash in phases gave common people a tough time as one of the warring Trinamool factions blocked the road and also the Birati railway station during the busy hours of the day.

Trouble started today morning after a group of contractors owing allegiance to North Dum Dum Municipality chairman Kalyan Kar heckled vice-chairman Sheikh Najum Uddin. This happened in the civic body office itself.
