BJP leaders protest in New Delhi against Mamata Banerjee's 'goondaism'

New Delhi, May 15 (IBNS): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders staged a silent protest against the alleged "goondaism" of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her party Trinamool Congress at Jantar Martar in the national capital on Wednesday.

Senior BJP politician and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was also present.

A scuffle between the BJP and Trinamool supporters broke out outside Calcutta University in north Kolkata through which Shah's roadshow was passing on Tuesday.

After the scuffle, bust of Bengali's social reformer Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar was vandalised inside Vidyasagar College located few miles away from Calcutta University. The BJP and Trinamool have been blaming each other for the incident.

While West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool supremo, Mamata Banerjee, sharply attacked the saffron party, BJP national president Amit Shah on Wednesday said the ruling party hatched a conspiracy to win the Lok Sabha polls.

Shah at a press conference said: "We were outside the Vidyasagar college and the gate of the college was intact. Then who vandalised the bust? It was a conspiracy by Trinamool and vandalised the bust. Who broke the locks of the college? How could BJP workers get the keys of the college room. All these prove that Trinamool goons vandalised the bust to win the lost battle."
