BJP Alleges its Bike Rally Attacked by TMC Cadre in Kolkata
The BJP Yuva Morcha supporters, part of a 8-day bike rally, were allegedly attacked by Trinamool Congress supporters as the two-wheelers were making their way from the BJP party office on Central Avenue to Swami Vivekananda’s house in Hedua on Friday.
The incident occurred around 11:15 am leaving 14 BJP supporters injured. No arrests have been made so far. The TMC, however, has denied the allegations.
TMC leader Partha Chatterjee said, ”The Government will comply with the decision of the High Court, but it is the duty of the organisers to keep the peace. Their only job is to be a success with the media.”
On Wednesday, a single judge Bench of the Calcutta High Court allowed the BJP's Yuva Morcha to take out an 8-day two-wheeler rally in the state. The bike rally, which was earlier not granted Police permission, won the fight in the Calcutta High Court.
The State Government had appealed to the division bench on Thursday challenging the earlier single bench order to allow the week-long BJP bike rally.
