Dr Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday spoke to Republic TV about the violence in West Bengal during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
"The situation in Bengal is because of the 32 years of governance by the Communists. Mamata Banerjee came to power fighting them and that is why she has become like them only. She must understand this is democracy. She also thinks that BJP is dividing the vote bank as the party is rising quickly in the state," he said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Union Minister and BJP leader Babul Supriyo spoke about the attack slamming the TMC. He also said that the tactics used by the party will not do them any good in the elections.
A BJP delegation led by Jay Prakash Majumdar and Sisir Bajoria visited the Chief Election Officer, West Bengal (Election Commission of India) at BBD Bag on Wednesday at 10-30 am to discuss important security and administrative measures regarding the gruesome attack on State BJP President Dilip Ghosh at Khejuri.

Taking to Twitter, Himanta Biswa Sarma has shared some pictures of his convoy which was allegedly blocked by TMC workers on both sides of the roads at Khejuri village in West Bengal's Kanthi Lok Sabha constituency, while the West Bengal police were present at the spot.
He also added that many of the BJP workers are injured after the goons gheraoed their convoy and attacked them. In another tweet, Himanta Biswa Sarma stated that the CRPF personnel tried to help them in gradually moving away from the area. He added that three of the West Bengal BJP workers were taken by the goons in front of the Kultha Bazar police and over 20 motorbikes have been damaged in the attack.
