New Delhi : Hindu radical outfit, Bajrang Dal on Friday, protested outside the Banga Bhawan in the national capital against the Malda violence and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The demonstrators were seen climbing over the police barricades and chanting slogans against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The police tried to contain the agitating protestors, reminding them that section 144- prohibiting an assembly of more than ten people in an area- had been imposed in the area and that they should protest ‘peacefully’.
Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged that the communal card would no longer help the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) in the upcoming polls, adding that Malda incident will backfire on the Mamata Banerjee government.
Earlier, Violence broke out in Kaliachawk when some Muslim groups called a meeting to protest certain remarks allegedly made by a Hindu leader in Uttar Pradesh about the Prophet. The BSF vehicles were set on fire when the security forces tried to intervene.
Several vehicles on the national highway were set on fire by the angry protestors, who also attacked the Kaliachawk Police Station.
Mamata Banerjee claimed that the incident was not that of communal violence, to which the BJP reacted strongly and accused her of trying to play vote-bank politics. (ANI)
