Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party has stated that it will approach the Election Commission after about a dozen bombs were allegedly hurled near party MP Arjun Singh’s office-cum-residence in West Bengal’s Bhatpara.
“We will approach the Election Commission regarding the incident,” party national vice president Mukul Roy told news agency ANI.
Commenting on the incident, BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya said the situation in West Bengal is “very bad”.
“TMC is synonymous with violence politics. Despite the Model Code of Conduct, goons are hurling bombs and firing in front of police. This is a very bad situation. The Election Commission should take this as a warning. We are doubtful if polling will be held peacefully,” he said.
BJP leader Rajib Banerjee echoed Vijayvargiya’s sentiments and said: “This is not good. The culture of West Bengal is against this.”
