Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief JP Nadda on Thursday (December 10) launched a scathing attack against West Bengal chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after his convoy was attacked allegedly by Trinamool Congress workers in Bengal’s Diamond Harbour.

JP Nadda said, “Whatever happened today, is enough to create an image of Bengal. It is clear that there is lawlessness and intolerance. There is no place for political debate.”

“What Mamata Banerjee is doing is detrimental to Indian Democracy. Eight supporters of our party are injured and they are in the hospital. The impact can be seen on the windscreen of my bullet proof car. Kailash ji, Mukul ji’s vehicles have been completely damaged. This is the cruel scenario of Bengal today,” he added.

Slamming the Trinamool Congress chief for calling PM Modi names, JP Nadda said that the glossary she uses for PM tells how much low she has taken down Bengal.

JP Nadda also attacked Mamata Banerjee for her not allowing Central government teams to visit the hospitals in Bengal during COVID times.

Stones rained in a torrent, shattering windscreens of vehicles on Thursday as the convoy of BJP chief J P Nadda came under attack by alleged TMC supporters in West Bengal, leaving several people injured.
