Clash during Mithun Chakraborty’s roadshow in Bengal’s Midnapore | India News

NEW DELHI: Clash broke out during actor-turned-BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty‘s roadshow in Bengal’s Midnapore after stones were hurled by some unknown persons. Chakraborty was campaigning for Agnimitra Paul, the BJP candidate for the Midnapore Lok Sabha seat. Both Chakraborty and Paul emerged unharmed in the incident.
Some people started hurling stones and bottles at the convoy when it reached Shekhpura More area.This led to a clash between BJP workers and those people.
Paul accused Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers of instigating the violence by hurling glass bottles and stones at their procession. He attributed the violence to the TMC‘s fear of the growing BJP support and condemned their actions, lamenting the disrespect shown to Mithun Chakraborty, a legendary actor.
She specifically pointed fingers at participants of a TMC street-corner meeting for inciting the violence.
TMC spokesperson Trinankur Bhattacharya refuted these claims, stating, “We do not condone such disorderly behavior. The BJP is simply fabricating drama as their roadshow failed to gather traction.”
Midnapore will vote on May 25 in the Phase 6 of Lok Sabha elections.
