Bricks were hurled at the vehicle of BJP leader Deepanjan Guha at Diamond Harbour, a city in the South 24 Parganas district in the Indian state of West Bengal, according to news agency ANI.

The protestors also attempted to block a road from where the convoy of BJP national president JP Nadda and BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya was passing.

Earlier, Home Minister Amit Shah had asked for a report after the party alleged in a letter that there were “serious lapses” in security during Nadda’s visit to Kolkata. BJP’s Bengal chief Dilip Ghosh had alleged that a “mob” armed with sticks had gathered outside the party office.

Nadda has been campaigning in Bhabanipur, the assembly constituency of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in a door-to-door outreach campaign ahead of the 2021 state assembly elections.
