Trinamool Congress leaders and party workers brought West Bengal to still by blocking major roads across the state Wednesday morning in protest to arrest of party leader in Lok Sabha Sudip Bandyopadhyay.
Bandyopadhyay was arrested on Tuesday for his alleged role in the Rose Valley ponzi scam.
Reports came in that BJP party offices were also demolished in several districts. The facts to the attack on national party’s office was yet not confirmed.
Ruling party supporters stood on the road with party flags and shouted anti-slogans against the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP and CBI.
Major choas and protest in large numbers by TMC workers were reported from Danton on NH60 in East Midnapore district, Dankuni on NH2 in Hooghly district and near the Bengal-Jharkhand boder at Asansol and Andal in Burdwan district.
The party workers had also blocked the connecting roads to Bengal and Odisha.
In Kolkata, BJP leaders including state president Dilip Ghosh and Rajya Sabha MP Roopa Ganguly are supposed to meet the governor at 1 pm on Wednesday.
Chief minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee said that her party workers would organise protests not only in Bengal, Delhi and Bhubaneswar (where Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Tapas Paul are being interrogated) Tripura, Manipur and a few other states.
