KOLKATA: Controversial Trinamool Congress leader and Birbhum district party president Anubrata Mondal again propagated violence, calling for tying extortionist Trinamool Congress workers in lightposts and beating them mercilessly to break their knees.

Speaking at a public meet in Kashemnagar in restive Mangalkot of Burdwan district on Sunday evening, the Burdwan district observer said,"We will not let cheats and lumpens take over our party. Wherever you find any worker indulging in extortion, tie them to lightposts and beat them to break their knees. I am with you," he said.

He also gave a free hand to police. "I spoke to Mangalkot IC an told him to put behind bars any worker indulging in extortion and break their legs. I will take care of the rest," the Trinamool strongman added.

His statement comes at a time of factional fighting in several blocks of the district, including the factional feud in Mangalkot block between MLA Siddikullah Chaudhury and Mangalkot block party president Apurva Chaudhury.

Mondal has time and again called for extreme violence in the politically volatile region of the state so much so that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee even distanced the party from violence earlier saying,"Anubrata is a good boy but has oxygen deficiency in brain".
