Hours after BJP national vice president Dilip Ghosh alleged that he was attacked by TMC workers while campaigning for Bhawanipore by-poll, TMC MP Saugata Roy on Monday termed his allegations 'a drama to seek attention. He further claimed that Ghosh was not harmed, instead, he was seen smiling and departing after campaigning. Roy said that Ghosh went to an area where there is resentment against him, which is why a spontaneous protest was launched during his visit to the area. Addressing a press conference here today, Ghosh had said, "While I was campaigning in Bhawanipore today, TMC workers hurled abuses at me. I was meeting some people at a vaccination centre when some people suddenly surrounded me and started jostling. One of our workers was badly beaten." Ghosh had said that his security officials had to take out their guns to stop the attackers. He went on to allege that BJP leader Arjun Singh was also surrounded by the attackers and was forced to leave the venue of the campaign midway. Watch the full video for more details.
