BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday accused the Trinamool Congress of orchestrating violence during his roadshow in Kolkata, presenting photographs to prove his point as the TMC, BJP sparring intensified in the slog overs of the Lok Sabha elections.

“We will not be intimidated by violence… The anger of Bengalis will translate into a defeat for Mamata didi who is stifling democracy in the state,” the BJP chief said.

Showing photographs to prove that Trinamool Congress workers broke the statue of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar, Shah said, “the college gates were closed, the room was locked … who opened the lock, BJP workers did not enter the college.”

Recounting the violence during his roadshow on Tuesday, Amit Shah said: “I was lucky to escape, had the CRPF not been there, it would have been difficult for me to escape.”

The Trinamool Congress and the BJP have blamed each other for the violence in College Street where a bust of iconic social reformer Iswarchandra Vidyasagar was vandalised in Vidyasagar College set up by him in 1872. The Bharatiya Janata Party alleged that stones were first thrown at them by TMC supporters during its president Amit Shah’s roadshow in the city.

The Trinamool has tried to portray the incident as one of Bengali pride, accusing the BJP of hurting local sentiments with the alleged attack.
