BJP, TMC workers clash in motorbike rally, Calcutta HC appointed observer injured

BJP, TMC workers clash in motorbike rally, Calcutta HC appointed observer injured”

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday called off its their bike rally after alleging that Trinamool Congress workers attacked the participants in several areas across Kolkata, reported ANI. While the first incident took place at Binani Bhawan in Pathuriaghata Street, the second took place outside state BJP headquarters. But despite such orders, BJP workers took out a bike rally carrying sharp-edged weapons. Rallies with weapons were also taken out in other areas of Bengal with senior BJP leaders including Ghosh taking part in them. When our workers made a stopover at Kanthi, they were attacked. However, on Wednesday, the High Court struck down the government's order and allowed the party's youth wing to go ahead with the rally.

Ghosh launched a sit-in demonstration in front of Gandhi Statue in the city to protest "the Trinamool high-handedness".

A BJP delegation later met state governor K N Tripathi and complained about the incident.

BJP leader Mukul Roy said: "The opposition is not allowed to exercise its rights and has been continuously coming under attack from the ruling party workers".

However, as a result of the clash, BJP supporters wore black masks and staged a dharna at Central Avenue, claiming that there is no democracy in West Bengal under the AITC. "They are trying to create disturbances in the state at a time when we are celebrating Swami Vivekananda's birth anniversary". The state did not give permission for such a rally in view of the Gangasagar Mela (fair). "We have requested the Central government not to send ministers to any function organised by the West Bengal government".

The party said its was tough to carry on with the programme in the present circumstances.

However, TMC minister Shashi Panja alleged that the BJP was using violence to disturb the peace and stability of the state.

"BJP workers destroyed public property and beat up local people". They wanted to hijack the birth anniversary celebrations of Swami Vivekananda and indulged in politics over it.

The High Court also instructed the police to monitor the rally and appoint a special officer to ensure that law and order is maintained.

The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) has embarked on an eight-day motorbike rally which started from Contai, in the southern part of the state, to Coochbehar in the north where it is scheduled to end on January 18.

Muslim organisations, however, welcomed the move by the city police. The court had granted the party permission to organise the rally under certain conditions.

The matter was taken up for further consideration in the court on Friday. "The state government always meant to disrupt the rally, which was granted permission by the court".

The Calcutta High Court has directed that the BJYM's rally be stopped for two days and recommence from January 15, following the mob attack on it here. "We, now, have suspended the rally temporarily but will take the decision in due course", Ghosh said.
