INDIA. West Bengal: A clash broke out between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers and Police outside the Raniganj railway station while they proceeded with the ‘Nabanna Cholo’ (march to secretatiat) mega rally. Police have reportedly taken many workers into preventive custody in Raniganj.

The Bharatiya Janata Party held a protest against the Mamata-led government, opposing all the corruption activities taking place in West Bengal during TMC rule. The rally is named “Nabanna Abhijan” (march to secretariat), bringing together all the party members and supporters from different parts of Bengal.

In a recent update, the saffron party has hired seven trains for the subsistence of the rally, which will take place today. The Abhijan will be divided into three major parts and will continue in Howrah ground, College Square and Santraganchi under the supervision of Sukanta Majumdar, Dilip Ghosh and Suvendu Adhikar.

Recently, veteran BJP head and former state president of the party, Rahul Sinha, said the state administration was “trying to create hurdles in the way” of the supporters. He added, “Our supporters were prevented from boarding a special train from Alipurduar to Sealdah on Monday evening and even lathi-charged by state police. The train, however, left later with our activists and supporters.”

Meanwhile, the West Bengal Police is against BJP’s clench and is forcibly forbidding them to take ahead the outcry. 

Current BJP state president Sukanta Majumder said, “This is the movement of people, and they are coming out on the road to catch thieves. No law can prevent the common people. I would say to the police that they should maintain their constitutional responsibilities. Otherwise, we will not be responsible if any law and order situation is created.”

On the other hand, WB president Sukanta Majumdar took a dig at the state ruling party by saying, “Why would the public take permission from thieves to hold demonstrations’… Police are behaving like TMC cadres. We did the Nabanna march last time when section 144 was imposed. Again, we’ll do it. It’s our fight to save Bengal.”
