Kolkata: In a virtual indictment of the West Bengal government, Governor M K Narayan on Wednesday said `goondaism` was taking place in the state, which has been rocked by TMC- Left clashes, and that action should be taken against those responsible for the violence.
"This is not a question of political culture. I think some sort of goondaism is going on here," Narayanan told reporters here after inaugurating a function of the Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival.
"The last two-three days have been very disturbing and distressing. This violence should not have taken place ... This is not acceptable ... Action should be taken against those who are responsible. There is clear evidence against the guilty," Narayanan said in reply to a question.
CPI(M) and Trinamool workers had clashed at Bamunghata in South 24 Parganas yesterday where earlier a former CPI(M) minister Abdur Rezzak Mollah had been allegedly assaulted by TMC workers.
