At least seven people were injured in clashes that allegedly broke out between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the (TMC) Trinamool Congress in two districts of poll-bound West Bengal. The clashes broke out in East Midnapore district on Sunday.
“BJP workers were attacked by the TMC with bamboo sticks when they were hoisting party flags. At least seven party workers were injured,” said a media statement issued by the BJP.
Some of the injured were taken to a state-run hospital in Contai, BJP leaders said. Police, however, said that no complaints were lodged till 9 pm on Sunday even though an officer confirmed that an incident took place.
