BJP Bengal co-in-charge and party’s IT cell chief Amit Malviya on Tuesday shared a video of Trinamool Congress MLA Naren Chakraborty threatening saffron party voters.
In the purported video, Chakraborty can be heard asking BJP supporters not to vote, otherwise, they will have to face the consequences after the election. He said that if they do not vote then they can stay in the state and do business or business.
Malviya has demanded the Election Commission to take action against Chakraborty on the basis of the video. Malviya also criticized Bengal CM and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee and accused her of patronizing such MLAs.
TMC’s Pandaveshwar (Asansol) MLA, Naren Chakraborty, openly threatens BJP voters and supporters not to come out and vote, or face the consequences. Such criminals should be behind bars but Mamata Banerjee in Bengal tells them The Election Commission should take care,” he said.
Asansol by-election on April 12
Bypolls to the Asansol Lok Sabha seat and four assembly seats are to be held on April 12. The seat fell vacant after Asansol seat MP Babul Supriyo resigned from the Lok Sabha in October last year citing differences with the BJP. He later joined Trinamool Congress (TMC). BJP has fielded MLA Agnimitra Pal against Trinamool Congress candidate Shatrughan Sinha in the Asansol Lok Sabha bypoll.
