In yet another case of violence in political rallies, on Monday, bombs were hurled at a BJP victory rally allegedly by Trinamool workers, in West Bengal's Hooghly.
Talking to reporters, a Trinamool worker has admitted that his party has resorted to violence to sabotage the BJP in the state when asked about the attack done by Trinamool workers.
"They(BJP) keep destroying the peace in this area time and again. Do you expect us to sit around wearing bangles in our hands? They are destroying banners, posters and speaking ill about Didi. what else do you expect us to do? Won't we retaliate?"
On being questioned whether Trinamool has now resorted to hurling bombs, he added: "What else do you expect us to do. You tell me what else should we do? Now you will see a different course of action by us. Once the orders come from the party, you will see."
Speaking on the reasons for the attacks, he said that they were fighting to save Trinamool.
"This fight is not anti-party. We are doing this to save the party."
When pointed out that the rally they attacked was a victory rally, he retorted, "Have they won the Arambagh Lok Sabha seat? We ourselves did not do any victory rally. "
Blaming the BJP for conducting another victory recently, he said that the BJP workers were only creating a nuisance and that they (TMC workers) were just awaiting party orders.
"We have staged our protest, now we are waiting for party orders."
The Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee has already enraged the BJP in West Bengal by ordering the Kolkata Police to find out the background details of the people who raised 'Jai Shri Ram' chants at her convoy at North 24, Parganas on Thursday.
As per sources, Mamata Banerjee wants to know whether the people raising the 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans are outsiders. She has further asked the police to find out the places in Bengal where the sloganeers are residing and figure out the areas in the state where she can run into them during her movement, sources said.
In response to this above incident, sources have said that the BJP in West Bengal is now reportedly planning to send 10 lakh 'Jai Shri Ram' postcards to the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
