After the results were announced, the BJP alleged that one of its party offices in the Hooghly district was set on fire. In addition to this, leaders like Suvendu Adhikari were also harassed by several TMC workers.
BJP office in Arambagh was also set on fire. The Arambagh incident happened after a BJP candidate Sujata Mondal lost the elections. "The TMC, in a bid to avenge the defeat of its candidate, indulged in acts of arson and torched our party office," India Today quoted a local BJP leader as saying.
"State Govt Didn't Help"
As per the BJP state president Dilip Ghosh, neither the state police nor the administration came to help the people in need. He also claimed that the mother of a booth president was murdered during an attack by the TMC workers at Jagaddal in the North 24 Parganas district. A few houses in the Jadavpur area were also vandalised by unknown miscreants.
Several people took to social media and shared pictures of people with massive gashes on their heads.
Mamata Refutes Allegations
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee refuted all the allegations by the BJP and said, "Even after the results were announced, BJP attacked our supporters in certain areas, but we ask our men not to get provoked and instead report to the police." The BJP has also announced a nationwide dharna against post-poll violence by TMC workers in Bengal on May 5.
