ABVP alleged that Mamata Banerjee’s goons attacked ABVP West Bengal’s Kolkata office

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had on Monday alleged that 15-20 party goons of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attacked ABVP West Bengal’s Kolkata office and engaged in an altercation with the activists, assaulted them and vandalised the organisation’s state office.

They had further alleged that TMC party goons deliberately vandalised the idols of Hindu deities and freedom fighters.

“Mamata Banerjee’s defeat in Nandigram had made the TMC cadres very resentful of those responsible for her loss and that such ‘traitors’ would not be allowed to live in Bengal for long,” ABVP said.
