Though TMC has accused BJP of the attack on Barman; however, the matter is currently being investigated.
Soon after the incident, Barman was rushed to Mathabhanga Sub-divisional Hospital for treatment, according to an Indian Express report.
Demanding an action over the alleged attack, the TMC has claimed that BJP workers vandalized Barman's car, which led to several head injuries.
Even TMC President Parthapratim Roy took a dig at BJP for the alleged attack and said, "They know they will lose, and therefore, they are attacking our candidate."
However, BJP district general secretary Sanjay Ckaraborty termed the entire incident as "a drama." "They know they will lose. To create tension and gain sympathy from voters, they are enacting a drama," he said.
Meanwhile, the TMC workers launched a protest in front of the SDO office and demanded action from the Election Commission. However, the incident is currently under investigation. Thus, the claim that TMC's Mathabhanga candidate Girindra Nath Barman was attacked by BJP workers is Unverifiable at present.
The eight-phase polling in West Bengal will conclude on April 29, and the counting of votes would take place on May 2, 2021.
