New Delhi:

Political leaders tweeted condemning an incident in which West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said she suffered a leg injury while campaigning for state elections in Nandigram, d ‘where the Trinamool Congress leader is competing.

Ms Banerjee said she was assaulted by four or five people at a time when there was no police around her. In the footage, the Chief Minister is seen holding her ankle as she sat in the front seat of a car.

“I unequivocally condemn the cowardly and despicable attack on @MamataOfficial ji by morons. The PS-WB police are now controlled by EC which is led by the BJP. The nation knows people who don’t believe in democracy can stoop to any level to express their frustration I wish @MamataOfficial ji a speedy recovery! Those behind this attack must not be spared, “Rashtriya chief Janata Dal, Tejashwi Yadav tweeted.

Congressman Abhijit Mukherjee tweeted: “I wish @MamataOfficial Didi a speedy recovery. Those behind this should not be spared. Didi, you have a difficult battle ahead and you will surely come out victorious! Best wishes for you and I wish you a speedy recovery again. “

“I strongly condemn the attack on Mamta Didi. Those responsible must be immediately arrested and punished. I pray for his speedy recovery,” tweeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The BJP claimed that Ms Banerjee was not attacked and that she was “making a big deal out of sympathy.” “Was it the Taliban that his convoy was attacked? A huge police force is accompanying him. Who can approach him? 4 IPS agents are in charge of his security and must be suspended. don’t appear out of nowhere, they must be She’s done drama for sympathy, ”Bengal BJP vice president Arjun Singh told ANI news agency.

The BJP alleged that Ms Banerjee was trying to turn a “simple accident” into a conspiracy and demanded an investigation from the CBI. “It may happen that she has been in an accident, but claiming that she was deliberately pushed is not acceptable. She has a lot of security personnel guarding her around the clock,” said the national secretary general of the BJP, Kailash Vijayvargiya, at PTI News Agency.

Ms Banerjee opposes Nandigram to her former aide Suvendu Adhikari, who switched to BJP before election dates were announced.

Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress this time faces a daunting challenge from the BJP, with the rival party deploying all its might of top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in their campaign in Bengal.

Elections in Bengal will take place over eight rounds and 33 days in a marathon calendar which Trinamool says was stretched on instructions from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other top BJP leaders.
