A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) delegation led by state vice president Badshah Alam submitted a memorandum on a series of attacks on its party activists and leaders allegedly by Trinamool 'goons'.

"We apprised the governor about the extreme lawlessness in the state and the Trinamool's repeated attacks on us in its bid to destroy the democratic fabric in the state", Alam told media persons after the meet.

"We also apprised him about the December 6 brutal attack on the BJP team in Cooch Behar district, in which several leaders including state vice president Malati Rava Roy were critically injured," he said.

Claiming that even the governor expressed concern over the growing political violence, the BJP leaders said he assured them of taking suitable measures in the matter.

Alam also said a central BJP delegation comprising MPs will visit Pundibari in Cooch Behar where over 80 houses of party supporters were destroyed allegedly by Trinamool goons.
