Bengal, March 18: More than a dozen of bombs were hurled near BJP MP Arjun Singh office-cum-residence, `Mazdoor Bhawan`, in North 24 Parganas by allegedly Trinamool Congress goons. BJP MP Arjun Singh alleged that bombs have been hurled at around 15 places by three people and their associates in the Jagaddal area of Bhatpara, North 24 Parganas.

The BJP MP told the media, “We are informing the police that criminals are roaming around with arms. The police are doing nothing. Bombs have been hurled at around 15 places and CCTV cameras installed by police have been broken by three people and their associates. Three persons suffered injuries, one has been admitted to hospital. The police are inactive. We will also complain to the Election Commission.”

Taking to Twitter, Singh said, “This evening, more than dozens of bombs were hurled at nearby my office-cum-residence `Mazdoor Bhawan`. This attack was done by Trinamool Congress goons. The local residents are in fear. The administration should ensure the safety of the citizens.”

After the bombing incident in the evening near my office-cum-residence, when I returned in the night, a bomb was hurled targeting my vehicle and that too in presence of West Bengal Police. Serious condition of lawlessness in the area. Where is administration?” he added in another tweet.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) AP Choudhury informed that three people including a child suffered injuries in the incident.

BJP party national vice president Mukul Roy on Thursday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party will approach the Election Commission regarding the incident. He told ANI “We will approach the Election Commission regarding the incident (which took place in Jagaddal, North 24 Parganas).

When asked if he would be contesting Assembly polls, Mukul Roy said, “This has not been finalized yet. The candidates` list will be released by Friday.”

BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya said the situation in West Bengal is very bad, adding “TMC is synonymous with violence politics. Despite the Model Code of Conduct, goons are hurling bombs and firing in front of police. This is a very bad situation. The Election Commission should take this as a warning. We are doubtful if polling will be held peacefully.”
