BJP lashes out at Mamata for contradicting statement on alleged attack

New Delhi: Politics over the alleged attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has heated up the campaign for the high-voltage Assembly polls in the state, with the BJP attacking the Trinamool Congress supremo for changing her statement over the incident that took place on Wednesday evening.

Malviya also tweeted a short video clip of Banerjee to make his point

The BJP said that Banerjee contradicted her own statement within 24 hours of the alleged attack.

Wishing ‘pishi’ (aunty), a term BJP uses to refer to Banerjee, a fast recovery, West Bengal BJP co-incharge, Amit Malviya tweeted, “It is amusing to see her contradict her own ‘attack’ theory and attribute the injury to a mishap, while campaigning, in less than 24 hours. This may perhaps be a result of intense public outrage and indignation in Nandigram against her claims.”

In a video message from the hospital, Banerjee said on Thursday, “I was greeting people from the bonnet of my car when there was a sudden push. As a result, my leg got squeezed. There will be problems in my leg but I shall not cancel any of my political programmes. I will take part in the campaigns on a wheelchair, if necessary.”

On Wednesday, Banerjee had said that four to five men were behind the alleged attack.

Malviya also tweeted a short video clip of Banerjee to make his point.
