Several BJP workers were injured in attacks by TMC goons in West Bengal's Midnapore. The BJP workers were on the way back home after attending the rally organised by the party. In Midnapore, a mega rally was organised by the BJP which was addressed by Amit Shah and other senior party leaders.
Several vehicles were also damaged after the TMC supporters pelted stones at the BJP workers.
BJP workers have alleged that petrol bombs were also hurled while their vans were returning from the meeting.
"Over 300 BJP workers have lost their lives in Bengal, but we won't buckle down. The more TMC attacks on us, the more aggressively we will move towards victory," said Amit Shah at the Midnapore rally.
"Some big leaders said that no one can defeat Trinamool in Bengal. I want to remind him that inside the election of Parliament he used to say that the account of BJP will not be opened. The BJP has won 18 seats under the chairmanship of our Dilip Ghosh and led by Modi ji. We will win 200 seats in West Bengal. You gave three decades to Congress, 27 years to Communists and 10 years to Mamata didi. Give 5 years to Bharatiya Janata Party, we will make Bengal 'Sonar Bangla'," Amit Shah further said.
On December 10, BJP National President JP Nadda's convoy was attacked by TMC goons when he was on his way to Diamond Harbour to address the party workers. The convoys of BJP state president Dilip Ghosh and BJP national General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya were also attacked on the same day.
