Talking to the media, Chowdhury added “when the procession was returning to a place near the Bishalgarh hospital , scattered gangs of BJP miscreants attacked the procession from roadside. This resulted in resistance by the CPI (M) workers and in the resultant clash two BJP miscreants and 4/5 CPI (M) supporters sustained minor injuries and two motor bikes were broken. “This time our workers resisted the BJP attacks because there was no other way to defend themselves”.
