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.

An ABP reporter was manhandled by the TMCP goons in Rajarhat.

This is surely not the kind of change people are voting for.
