Kolkata- West Bengal BJP President Dilip Ghosh on Friday claimed Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari will not attend the Bengal Global Business Summit starting from next Tuesday as a protest against the attack on BJP workers by the ruling Trinamool Congress.
Sources said the BJP, struggling to find a foothold in Bengal, believes that Friday's incident -- allegedly stemming from some local Trinamul activists' adventurism -- may be a boon for it.
The BJP alleged that some Trinamool workers hurled stones at their members and also attacked them with sticks, while the Trinamool, denying the allegations, accused BJP workers of indulging in vandalism.
Police sources said that a huge police contingent was rushed to the spot and the situation was brought under control. Workers of both the parties pelted stones at each other near Red Road in Kolkata.
The street fights also attracted Calcutta High Court's notice after its special officer, Rabi Shankar Datta, submitted that his vehicle was vandalised and he sustained minor injuries near Mohammad Ali Park at 11.15 am. On Thursday, the court had appointed two special officers to ensure law and order is maintained during the bike rally. Our party will never allow a communal force like the BJP to disturb the peace prevailing in the state. "They were hurling abuses and brandishing lathis", Panja said.
