TMC general secretary and Education Minister Partha Chatterjee accused the BJP of trying to instill fear of Delhi in them. “They should know that these are futile efforts as the people of the state were not afraid of such threats,” he added.

“It is highly condemnable that they are trying to aggravate the situation by making inflammatory speeches. The BJP is trying to bring the division politics in West Bengal but the party should know that they will not succeed in it,” the TMC leader added.

Partha asserted that the people of West Bengal voted for TMC even in the unfavorable circumstances in Lok Sabha elections.

“Our Chief Minister is committed to development and the people of West Bengal will give a befitting reply to those who are trying to malign image of the state,” Partha said.

Meanwhile, the newly elected BJP MP from Asansol Babul Supriyo said that TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee got frustrated because of increasing vote bank of the saffron party in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

Earlier, a five-member BJP team led by party vice-presidents SS Ahluwalia and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi visited Sandeshkhali in North 24 Parganas district, where over two dozen party workers were injured on May 28 after they were "fired upon by Trinamool patronised goons".
