Kolkata: The West Bengal unit of BJP on Monday alleged that its supporters were attacked by Trinamool Congress workers at various places in West Midnapore district and that there had been no let up in attacks on opposition
parties even after the change of government in the state.
In a statement, the BJP said Trinamool activists had
fired and hurled bombs at its supporters in Pursuri, Mangrul,
Nikarbag, Hooldanga, Nichna, Kubirghat and Hazipur villages
since November 11.
Trinamool Congress activists `sealed` the inter-district
border at Goghat and prevented BJP supporters from attending a
rally of the party`s state president Rahul Sinha at Tatarpur
against price rise and corruption, it claimed.
"While the CPI(M) has unleashed a reign of terror in the
state for the last 34 years, the people of West Bengal have
taught the CPI(M) a lesson by bringing the Trinamool with a
huge mandate. But in these five months (of the new government)
we see the same terror," the statement said.
It said that while Trinamool Congress leader Mamata
Banerjee had raised the slogan of `change not revenge,` her
party activists seem to believe in `revenge, not change.`
"Does that mean that she does not have control over her
party or is it true that her party is being infiltrated by
erstwhile CPI(M) cadre?", the statement said.
