Blame Game begins in Bengal After CM Mamata’s Attack

Abhishek Banerjee, a Trinamool Congress MP, shared the image with a message targeting the BJP, which has mounted an aggressive campaign to try and oust the two-time Chief Minister from power in Bengal. “BJP brace yourselves to see the power of people of BENGAL on Sunday, May 2nd. Get ready,” he tweeted.

Earlier in the day, District Magistrate Vibhu Goel, Superintendent of Police Praween Prakash and other police officers visited the Birulia Bazar area, where the chief minister was assaulted. The officials spoke to witnesses and accessed CCTVs installed in the area to ascertain the sequence of events.

Banerjee was injured while campaigning in Nandigram, where she will contest against her former aide and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Suvendu Adhikari. The incident took place while the chief minister was returning from a temple in Reyapara.

The BJP, which is one of the main players in the state elections, accused Banerjee of “spreading lies”, saying they will complain to the Election Commission about her actions, NDTV reported. The saffron party alleged that the Trinamool Congress chief was trying to gain political mileage ahead of the Assembly elections.

A delegation of BJP leaders met Election Commission officials in Kolkata on Thursday and submitted a memorandum seeking an investigation, according to ANI. Party leaders Sabyasachi Dutta and Shishir Bajoria led the delegation. “We are shocked to see CM was injured while in Nandigram wherein she has alleged that she was pushed by some people,” the memorandum stated. “We request that a detailed enquiry is ordered.”

At the spot where Mamata Banerjee was hurt, a broken pole was the focus of investigations into what went down on Wednesday evening at the crowded market where the Chief Minister had been greeting supporters. Some suggest her car hit the pole, while her party maintains the Chief Minister, who has Z-plus security, was surrounded and pushed, which led to her injuries.

The Election Commission has asked the Bengal administration for a report by Friday.

Nandigram is the epicenter of the Mamata Banerjee versus BJP fight that is the theme of the Bengal election starting March 27.

The Chief Minister has been challenged in Nandigram by her former aide-turned-BJP rival Suvendu Adhikari.

The Chief Minister has been challenged in Nandigram by her former aide-turned-BJP rival Suvendu Adhikari.

Mr Adhikari won the Nandigram seat in 2016 as a Trinamool candidate and his supporters have pitched Mamata Banerjee as an “outsider”. Fighting that label, the Chief Minister has been campaigning in the area that catapulted her party to power in 2011 following an agitation against farmland acquisition.

Elections in Bengal will be held in a record eight rounds over 33 days. The results will be declared on May 2.
