Dhulagarh (West Bengal) [India], Dec. 25 (ANI): The Congress Party on Sunday urged the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal Government to take immediate measures to restore peace and normalcy in the violence-hit area of Dhulagarh in Howrah district. Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury told ANI that the state government is limiting itself in taking action against people responsible for creating such a problem in the state. "Our urge to the government is that immediate measures should be taken in order to restore peace and normalcy in the region because rumor has been spreading," he said. "It is a matter of great concern... This kind of communal tension doesn't confine to a particular area... But the state government is exhausting all its resources to hide this issue," he added. Earlier on Saturday, a three-member Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation visited Dhulagarh to look into incidents of violence with the party alleging that its supporters and members of a particular community are being targeted.
