BJP on Thursday constituted a five-member committee, including four MPs to look into the alleged attack

The BJP on Thursday constituted a five-member committee, including four MPs, to look into the alleged attack on its members during their protest in West Bengal and demanded that the state government take strict action against the culprits. The committee members include former Uttar Pradesh DGP Brij Lal and Samir Oraon, both Rajya Sabha MPs, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Aparajita Sarangi, both Lok Sabha MPs, and Sunil Jakhar, a BJP leader from Punjab, the party said in a statement. The BJP has accused the West Bengal government of committing “police atrocities” against its members during the party’s protest march in Kolkata on Tuesday over alleged corruption in the state government.

However, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that the BJP had brought bomb-wielding hooligans from outside the state in trains to incite trouble during its march to the Nabanna state secretariat. Banerjee, also a Trinamool Congress supremo, said police could have opened fire on violent BJP protesters during Tuesday’s march, but the government exercised utmost restraint.
