As a part of the party’s ‘jail bharo andolan’, the BJP supporters were demonstrating outside the district Collector’s office in protest against the alleged deteriorating law and order situation, misrule of TMC Government and chit-fund scam. Pujari said police lathicharged agitators in which several party workers were injured. State BJP president KV Singhdeo condemned the lathicharge by police and termed it as an inhuman act of the Trinamool Congress Government.
