Violence at the East Midnapore BJP rally before TMC's 'show of power'

The East Midnapore district was rocked on Wednesday by clashes between the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) cadres.
The BJP alleged that TMC miscreants had targeted their rally in Ramnagar. The saffron brigade vandalised an office belonging to the Mamata Banerjee-led party to fight that. Before alleging that they had faced a similar situation on Wednesday, BJP showed a purported attack that TMC had run on them on Tuesday night.

The local leadership of BJP has said that after its heavyweight leader Suvendu Adhikari defected the party to join the Hindutva outfit, TMC was trying to generate a sense of fear among the citizens of Midnapore.

The TMC event is considered to be a demonstration of its power in the area following the desertion of the former behemoth of Suvendu. Urban Affairs Minister Firhad Hakim and veteran leader Saugata Roy will lead a rally from the Central Park of Contai to the Dormitory Site.
