Saugata Roy, a Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader and Member of Parliament (MP), questioned the BJP on Friday over Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's injuries to her left leg and waist after being allegedly assaulted by a "few unknown persons" during her Nandigram campaign.
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar had earlier asked the Chief Minister to inquire about Mamata Banerjee's welfare, as she remained hospitalized. Meanwhile, in the wake of the suspected assault on the Chief Minister, the TMC has postponed the party manifesto launch scheduled for Thursday. The EC has asked the Bengal secretary to submit a report by Friday, as some politicians condemn the attack while others call it "political drama." Mamata's allegations have been debunked by eyewitnesses who say she was wounded when the car door collided with a poster and that 'no one forced her.'
