A war of words broke out between the ruling TMC government and BJP after the convoy of BJP chief J P Nadda was allegedly attacked with stones and bricks while on its way to Diamond Harbour in Kolkata. West Bengal Chief Minister suggested that the attack was “staged” even as several Union ministers, including Home Minister Amit Shah, and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, hit out at the ruling party.
“Every day they (BJP activists) are coming out (for rallies) with firearms. They are slapping themselves and blaming it on the Trinamool Congress. Just think of the situation. They are roaming around with the BSF, CRPF, Army, CISF….then why are you so scared,” Banerjee said in Kolkata as quoted by PTI.
The Union Home Ministry has sought a report from the West Bengal government on the alleged “serious security lapses” during the BJP president’s visit, the circumstances and what action has been taken on it.
