Clash between two groups occurs inside BJP party office in West Bengal
While a meeting of the BJP was going on at East Bardhaman district on Thursday (January 21) evening, two groups of people clashed at the party office creating a stir in the area.
The members of the two groups hurled stones at each other and torched vehicles which were parked near the party office.
BJP leaders alleged that the ruling TMC was behind the whole incident. However, the TMC has denied all the allegations. The TMC claimed that the two groups of people who clashed are the old and new members of the BJP. The violence has been caused due to internal problems.
A police officer said, “Members of one group of the two came out of the office, which was recently inaugurated by BJP president J P Nadda virtually, and set two mini trucks on fire.”
A large contingent of police personnel brought the situation under control and chased away the troublemakers.
BJP leaders who were present at the meeting alleged that the local Trinamool Congress workers created the violence.
Senior BJP leader Samik Bhattacharya said, “The party will inquire into the incident and not tolerate any indiscipline act.
