BJP’s star campaignnerRoopa Ganguly and a woman candidate were attacked and abused by alleged Trinamool Congress workers at a public meeting in upscale Alipore, less than 500 metres from CM Mamata Banerjee’s home, on Tuesday evening.
Roopa was shoved around and had to be rescued by police, who threw a protective ring around her and pushed past the mob. Ward 74 candidate Paromita Dutta was injured. Roopa’s driver was beaten up and her car damaged. “Mamata Banerjee’s goons pushed me and abused me in the filthiest language. The policemen saved me, or else it could have been worse,” said Roopa.
