The Union Minister V Muraleedharan was Thursday attacked by ruling TMC’s cadre in the presence of West Bengal police in West Midnapore.
The minister is on a visit to the state to take stock of the post poll violence perpetrated by the ruling Trinamool Congress cadre.
Muraleedharan, with a video of the attack, tweeted, “TMC goons attacked my convoy in West Midnapore, broken windows, attacked personal staff. Cutting short my trip. #BengalBurning”
More than 20 BJP and RSS cadres have been killed by the TMC cadre since May 2.
The Union Home Minister has also sent a team of four senior ministry officials to take stock of the situation and submit a report.
The West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has been continuously raising his voice against the violence perpetrated by the TMC in connivance with the state machinery.
