Unaware of violence: TMC leader Moon Moon Sen
Kolkata, Apr 29 (UNI) Actor-turned-Trinamool Congress MP Moon Moon Sen today said she was unaware of clashes in her Asansol constituency as she had “woken up late”.
Sen is the candidate against BJP’s Babul Supriyo.
"They gave me my bed tea very late so I woke up very late. What can I say? I really don't know," the yesteryear actor was quoted as saying by a private television channel.
Incidentally, clashes erupted between BJP and TMC workers in Asansol and BJP MP Babul Supriyo’s car was vandalised in the violence. He accused the TMC workers of capturing polling booths and not allowing people to vote.
Supriyo, a minister in the outgoing cabinet, was on his way to a polling booth in Barabani when his car was attacked. The rear windshield of his car was smashed in the resulting clashes outside polling booth number 199.
Meanwhile, Sen suggested that violence in West Bengal had reduced from the days of the Communist Party of India (M) rule. She also said political clashes take place across India and not just in Bengal.
When the TV channel asked her about the allegations of violence made by Supriyo, she walked off saying, "Don't say his name please. Bas (that's it)."
