The Bidhannagar municipal election turned into a virtual battlefield since morning with several incidents of booth capturing, rigging, brick batting and hurling bombs reported from Karunamoyee, Baishakhi and several other places of Bidhannagar.
Former finance minister and Karunamoyee candidate Ashim Dasgupta said their agents were beaten at various places in Karunamoyee.
CPI (M) agent Amit Ghosh received a severe head injury and was admitted to a nearby hospital.
“We contacted the State Election Commission as well as the police several times. But every such attempt went futile as the police acted as Trinamool cadre. However we will fight till the end. It’s the people who will win in the end, not the hooligans,” said Dasgupta to the media.
