Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Suvendu Adhikari’s rally attacked in Nandigram

News Desk: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and BJP candidate Suvendu Adhikari’s rally was attacked in Nandigram in Bengal, the BJP alleged today, asking the Election Commission to bring in more security forces ahead of polls in the state.

Dharmendra Pradhan said a BJP youth worker was attacked and is in a serious condition after clashes with workers of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.

“After Suvendu Adhikari’s padayatra started today, our Yuva Morcha leader was attacked here, in front of me. When I saw him bleeding, I took him to the hospital… He may need to be taken to a specialized hospital. I appeal to the Election Commission to deploy paramilitary forces here,” said the Union Minister.

“Mamata Didi should fight elections in a democratic way. We don’t understand… she should not do all this, they belong to Nandigram,” he added.

Mr Pradhan alleged that 130 BJP workers had been killed in violence by Trinamool.
