After TMC’s landslide victory in the results of the West Bengal Assembly elections, reports of violence have started coming out in some areas of the state.
On Sunday evening, some people set fire to a BJP office in Arambagh in Hooghly district. BJP has blamed TMC workers for this.
However TMC has denied this. A police officer of Hooghly said that no one has been arrested in this case so far.
Meanwhile, in Kolkata too, alleged TMC supporters surrounded the BJP office in Hastings and shouted slogans. But the police removed him from the chance after some time.
The Election Commission has banned the victory procession and celebrations because of the Corona infection.
Despite this, TMC supporters were seen celebrating, bursting firecrackers and distributing sweets. Taking cognizance of this, the commission has ordered the arrest of such people and action against them by suspending the officers of the police station concerned.
Mamta Banerjee appealed to the supporters outside her residence to return home and not take any celebrations or victory processions after the TMC indicated a majority in the election results.
He said that the party will decide on this later. He asked supporters and activists to be cautious with the Corona infection.
“TMC cadres didn’t stop at burning BJP’s party offices, they set our booth agent’s house in Bishnupur also on fire…” tweeted the BJP’s IT cell chief Amit Malviya.
Meanwhile, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman took to Twitter to share a video of a BJP office in West Bengal’s Arambagh being set on fire, and told the party workers in the state to stay safe.
“Shocking images of a @BJP4Bengal office being set on fire. Hope the administration ensures everyone’s safety,” Sitharaman wrote.
