Bolpur: A district president of the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday courted controversy again by inciting partymen to "attack" independent candidates in the ongoing panchayat elections who had posed threat to the party`s official nominees and even to "hurl bomb on policemen".

"Vote for Mamata Banerjee, don`t vote for anyone else and if any independent candidate threatens you, uproot his house, invade his house. Don`t give vote to those independents," said Anubrata Mondal, TMC Birbhum district president, at an election campaign meeting in Kasba village in Bolpur sub-division.
"If the administration supports those independents, hurl bombs on the police of that administration… I`m telling (you)," Mondal said when State Agriculture Minister Malay Ghatak and Fisheries Minister Chandranath Sinha were present on the dais.

Mondal on July 11 had dubbed Congress as a "party of beggars".

A month earlier, he had instructed party workers to prevent CPI(M), Congress and others from filing nominations for the rural polls.
