KHARAGPUR: Manohar says he will vote for the BJP. He is busy filling pani puris for customers. His chaat stall, in Kharagpur Sadar, is between the BJP office and a makeshift podium from where the local Congress candidate is campaigning. “We have never given them (BJP) a chance,” he says. “The TMC is a bunch of goons. You must’ve heard of how they intimidated our councillors.” He is referring to five councillors who joined TMC, after winning polls on BJP tickets. There were allegations they were intimidated, even shot at. “How long can we live in fear?” he asks. Just then, a Congress campaign aide attaches the party flag to his pushcart. He looks at it and continues working. “But you don’t like them,” I say, pointing to the flag. He just shrugs.
