A delegation met the IG of the Law and Order also. After leaving the police headquarters, former MLA Ashish Kumar Saha said:
“BJP miscreants set fire to the Congress office after the Congress leaders returned from Charilam. And even after being assured by the police, Congress workers were beaten. The IG Law and Order has been informed in this regard. Especially those involved in today’s incident should be arrested”
He also said that there is a program in the Congress for the month of August. This program will be organized in different block areas. Then if the BJP obstructs the Congress programme, resistance will be created.
Mr. Saha said that the administration will be responsible for this.
Meanwhile, Sudip Roy Barman said that the Police have been asked to take appropriate action. He said that he has received assurances from the police officials that such incidents will not be organized in the coming days.
The program started on this day with permission. But BJP tried to block it and blocked the road. Those who came to join the program have been arranged to sent home escorted by security guards . But still eight to 10 Congress workers were beaten up by BJP workers in front of the police. The matter is that the role taken by the police administration on this day is very reprehensible” said Pradesh Congress President Birjit Sinha.
