Kolkata: In a bid to stop BJP from fixing its roots in Bengal for upcoming Assembly elections vehicles of BJP leaders JP Nadda and Kailash Vijayvargiya’s convoys were attacked as the two leaders visited the state to campaign for the Bengal elections in 2021.
Stones were hurled at BJP national president JP Nadda’s convoy on way to Diamond Harbour in West Bengal. On the other hand, in South 24 Parganas, Kailash Vijayvargiya’s convoy was also attacked in a separate incident in which his vehicle was pelted with stones.
The protestors also attempted to block the road from where the convoy was passing. Sources claimed that Nadda and Vijayvargiya didnot get hurt during the incident.
Shah seek report from DGP
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has sought a report from West Bengal DGP over reports of a security lapse during BJP national president JP Nadda’s visit to the poll-bund state, sources told India TV.
Earlier today, BJP’s West Bengal unit chief Dilip Ghosh wrote a letter to Amit Shah regarding a security lapse in Nadda’s Kolkata visit on Wednesday. He alleged that during Nadda’s different engagement in Kolkata, it was observed that there were serious lapses on security arrangments, purportedly due to negligence and casual approach of the state’s police department.
“Police didn’t intervene to stop them and casually allowed them to come within a close perimeter of Nadda ji’s vehicle,” he wrote. He said that the pilot car provided by the police didn’t create a smooth and safe passage for Nadda for travelling from one place to another. The convoy was stopped at many traffic lights, causing serious concern for potential hazards. Nadda is a Z category protectee.
