“TMC workers pelted stones on me while I was addressing a meeting at Muzzafar Chowk,” Hussain tweeted, saying he was protected and the get together staff had lodged a grievance. “It’s clear that TMC knew it is losing and hence is becoming desperate,” Hussain stated. “I myself went to the Golabari Police Station & asked them why police personnel were not deployed according to my Y + CRPF cover security protocol. Strangely, they had no answers for that.”
In his grievance, Umesh Rai, the BJP candidate from Howrah North, named few individuals behind the assault, alleging they have been all identified TMC males within the space.
Police confirmed the lodging of the FIR and go to of Hussain to the station, including that the alleged incident was being investigated. The TMC denied any involvement of its staff and stated the BJP was staging a “drama” to get consideration because the roadshows and conferences of the saffron get together have been “failing” to attract crowds.
