Majumdar, a three-time MLA of the area, claimed that he confronted the BJP workers as they were making wild allegations against the TMC.

“They stopped my car and heckled me after which our women workers intervened,” Majumdar told reporters.

The BJP workers alleged that the MLA and his supporters beat up the participants of the rally without any provocation.

BJP spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said that the law and order condition in the state becomes evident if a ruling party MLA “attacks opposition workers on the street with a stick”.
