“Fascism at its peak in Bengal. Today @AITCofficial goons attacked me and our party workers at Rajganj. Savagery and lawlessness are the order of the day today in Bengal. @HMOIndia @PMOIndia @jdhankhar1 @narendramodi @AmitShah @BJP4Bengal @DilipGhoshBJP,” Jayanta Kumar Roy tweeted along with a video.
The MP from Jalpaiguri and the injured were rushed to North Bengal Medical College and Hospital in Siliguri.
BJP MLA and Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari also alleged that Roy and four other workers were attacked by TMC while arranging the return of BJP workers who left due to the post-poll violence in the state.
“Dr. Jayanta Kumar Roy; M.P. Jalpaiguri attacked by TMC goons along with 4 workers at Rajganj while arranging the return of BJP workers who fled due to political violence. The injured have been rushed to North Bengal Medical College & Hospital. I wish them speedy recovery,” Adhikari tweeted.
A video of the attack shared by the BJP leader shows a group of men with their faces covered hitting his car with sticks and throwing stones even as Muraleedharan and others in the car try to duck.
In a tweet, MoS Ministry of External Affairs, V Muraleedharan, said, “TMC goons attacked my convoy in West Midnapore, broken windows, attacked personal staff. Cutting short my trip.”
