West Bengal, Dec 26: BJP leader and MP Sunil Mondal, who had switched over from the TMC to saffron faced protests by the workers of the ruling party in West Bengal when he was going to an office of the saffron camp on Saturday.
The incident happened when Mondal was going to the BJP party office at Hastings in Kolkata.
BJP MP Arjun Singh alleged that TMC miscreants attacked on Mondal.
“Some TMC activists, who were participating in a program there, blocked his car. They sat on the road to stop him from going to our office. They also banged the window panes, pelted his vehicle with stones,” Sunil Mondal said.
This led to a scuffle between the BJP and TMC activists who were present there.
Police rushed to the spot and ensured the safe passage of Mondal’s car.
“This only shows the true colour of the TMC. They don’t believe in any democratic norm. Is this a way to treat a people’s representative?” Mondal asked.
Including heavyweight TMC leader Suvendu Adhikari and five TMC MLAs, Mondal had joined the BJP at Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s rally in Midnapore on December 19.
Mondal was elected as TMC MP from Purba Bardhaman. The TMC claim that the incident was a reflection of people’s anger against the turncoats.
“It was people’s anger against the turncoats and a spontaneous protest,” TMC MP Saugata Roy said.
