Leaders of Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress accused by BJP's Amit Shah of orchestrating violence during his Kolkata roadshow on Wednesday struck back at the BJP boss with what they said, was video evidence to establish the BJP's complicity in the violence and vandalism of the bust of renowned Bengal reformer, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar.
"Amit Shah is a liar…. The video is the proof," said Trinamool leader Derek O'Brien at a media briefing before heading to the Election Commission with a litany of complaints against the BJP, reports Hindustan times.
This video shows some people jumping over the fence to enter the college, the lawmaker said, his rebuttal to Amit Shah who had hours earlier contended that Trinamool activists had broken the statute to be able to pin the blame on his party and gain sympathy of people.
A statue of renowned Bengal reformer, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, was destroyed and a college named after him ransacked in last evening violence, which the BJP and rival Trinamool Congress leaders have blamed on each other.
