Chakraborty told ANI, "We want to tell the ruling party that such a shameless government should resign now. Our workers are being attacked by TMC and it is happening across the state."
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief JP Nadda had on Saturday said that TMC is working with criminal instinct as BJP has lost about 130 party officials, 300 supporters in Bengal.
"In Bengal, about 130 BJP officials and 300 party supporters lost their lives. This is rampant. I performed the last rites of 100 workers at Bagbazar Ghat on September 28, 2019. You have seen those visuals, the whole country saw that. In the span of one month, 6-7 workers lost their lives. TMC workers have done this due to political malice," he said. (ANI)
