The Center on Monday sought a report from the West Bengal government on post-post violence targeting opposition activists in the state.
Political activists, including the BJP, have been targeted by the opposition since the announcement of the results of the 292-member West Bengal Assembly elections, which emerged as the winner of the ruling Trinamool Congress.
“The MHA has asked the West Bengal government for a report targeting opposition political activists in the state on post-election violence,” a spokesperson tweeted.
The BJP has alleged that one of its party offices in Hooghly district was set on fire, and some of its leaders, including Suvendu Adhikari, were hit by TMC activists in other parts of the state.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has called on her supporters to keep the peace and not to be provoked.
