Internal clash in the West Bengal unit of BJP has come to the fore in Bankura district.
According to the report Lok Sabha member and Union Minister of State for Education Subhash Sarkar was locked by local BJP workers on Tuesday.
BJP workers kept the Union Minister locked in the office for more than an hour. Along with this, local BJP supporters also raised ‘go away’ slogans against him.
However, later a large contingent of police reached the spot and broke the lock and rescued the minister.
This tension increased when the minister reached the party office in Bankura. Here local BJP workers gheraoed him. As soon as he went inside the room, party workers locked the room from outside.
After this, a scuffle broke out between BJP workers and government security personnel.
When BJP Organizational District President of Bankura Sunil Rudra Mandal reached the party office after receiving information about the incident, the agitating BJP workers also beat him up.
The main charge against Sarkar was that instead of giving importance to the initial workers responsible for building the organizational structure of the party in Bankura, he was giving importance to the persons close to him.
When Sarkar was taken out by the police, he refused to give any comment on the matter even after being asked repeatedly by the media.
However, the organizational district president of Bankura claimed that the agitators who were expelled from the BJP no longer have any connection with the party.
