Central Minister attacked by 'TMC goons' in Bengal

Thursday, May 6, 2021 • Tamil Comments

V Muraleedharan, the Minister of State for External Affairs, was today attacked by thugs in West Bengal. The Minister tweeted that the assaulters belong to the TMC.

"TMC goons attacked my convoy in West Midnapore, broken windows, attacked personal staff. Cutting short my trip. #BengalBurning (sic)," he wrote. A Union Minister escaping lynching by a mob has come as a shocker.

"BJP will not be threatened by Un-Democratic forces. Our fight against perpetrators of violence will continue in Democratic means," he later tweeted.

Later, speaking to the media, Bengal BJP President Dilip Ghosh said that almost half of the Assembly seats in the State are under the throes of violence. He added that, so far, 21 people have been killed.

As the violence goes unabated in Bengal, many are claiming that these are exaggerated reports. A few fake videos have been doing the rounds. But just because they are fake, it doesn't mean that the ground situation is fine.
