During the aggressive campaigning of the BJP and TMC in Nandigram, Mamata Banerjee alleges that she attacked by 4-5 men in the crowd, and was grievously injured. While there are different “eyewitnesses” to the incident with no two versions matching, a group of BJP workers gathered at the site where Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday suffered injuries. In fits of rage, they set tyres on fire in the middle of the road, the next day on Thursday.
BJP workers burning tyres and creating nuisance in Nandigram, where Mamata Banerjee was attacked yesterday.
In short, "Jungleraaj" successfully implemented with the help of Election Commission. Congrats Bengal ! ??

Earlier, on Wednesday evening, Mamata Banerjee filed her nomination papers to fight the 2021 Bengal assembly election from Nandigram against her former confidante Suvendu Adhikari. She then set ablaze the trail of her campaign and while on road, around 6 pm, she suffered injuries on her leg and shoulder after she was allegedly “manhandled by 4-5 men” in the crowd. Mamata told reporters that some men had pushed her after which she fell flat on her face.
Sukumar Maiti, a BJP worker has said, “No one pushed Mamata, she is lying. Her door was open, which banged on her when it hit a pole. She is lying.”
Purba Medinipur District Magistrate Vibhu Goel and SP Praveen Prakash visited Birulia Bazaar in Nandigram where Mamata Banerjee suffered injuries after allegedly being pushed by unidentified people.
She was discharged from the hospital on Friday, with doctors saying she has responded well to treatment. However, huge debates are fueled by different parties some alleging she was lying or doing “drama”, while others sympathize.
As stated by some leaders, whether she was pushed or injured by accident, the fact of the matter is unless a matter is proven, with no CCTV cameras at the spot, one should take the course of humanity and wish her a speedy recovery. The silence of the Prime Minister and other BJP leaders was deafening in this case.
Captain Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister of Punjab, a military historian, and elected Member of the Legislative Assembly from Patiala, of the Congress taking her version of the incident which was initially released, said:
Disgusted to read of attack on West Bengal CM @MamataOfficial. Violence has no place in politics and civilized society. I wish her a speedy recovery. Those responsible must be put behind bars.
