New Delhi: On Thursday, during Suvendu Adhikari’s rally in the Nandigram constituency,  a clash broke out between the workers of BJP and TMC. After such an incident, Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister, and Senior BJP leader lashed out against the Government of West Bengal CM and stated that democracy is being murdered in West Bengal.

He said, “If she wants to contest why not with democratic ways. Since morning, when Suvendu Adhikari started his padayatra, due to fear of losing to him and his popularity they are attacking us. On Sonachura Chowk, our young worker was attacked”.

The Union Minister stated that two incidents of violence took place on that day. After visiting the Reapara Rural Hospital, Pradhan said, “In the morning at Kalicharanpur, crude bombs were hurled and injured few. I saw the injured Yuva Morcha worker while on way to campaigning”.

I urge the Election Commission to intervene”. Pradhan cut short his speech at Sonachura to visit the injured BJP worker at the hospital.
