Violence in Bengal: Voting is to be held for the sixth phase of assembly elections in West Bengal on Thursday (April 22), but before this, the incident of throwing bombs at three places in the state on Tuesday has once again created an atmosphere of awe. According to the information, all three incidents took place in the constituencies where voting is to be held on Thursday. One person lost his life due to the explosion.
A crude bomb was hurled at a dumping ground on Tuesday night in Titagarh under the North 24 Parganas district. As soon as the incident was reported, the police reached the spot and took out two persons buried under the rubble, and rushed to BN Bose Hospital, where 28-year-old Rajkishore Jadav died in the early hours of Wednesday. At the same time, the other injured person was shifted to a hospital in Kolkata.
In another incident in Titagarh, the miscreants allegedly hurled crude bombs at the NJMC Jute Mill area of the city on Tuesday night. Titagarh comes under the Barrackpore assembly constituency. The area is close to the home of BJP leader Santosh Jena. Police went to the area on Wednesday morning and recovered two live crude bombs. The area remains tense after these two incidents.
Another bomb blast also happened in Bhatapara at around 1 pm on Tuesday night. It is a municipality that comes under the Jagatdal assembly constituency. This area is the stronghold of BJP MP Arjun Singh. He was previously a member of the ruling All India Trinamool Congress (TMC). Here, when the police reached the spot, no bomb was found. The people of the area allege that the BJP is behind the incident. He said that the opposition party was trying to create panic to prevent him from casting his vote during the voting on Thursday.
Strict security arrangements
Tight security arrangements have been made in Titagarh and Jagatdal after these incidents. Security forces are trying to rekindle confidence in voters so that they cast their votes on Thursday. Let us tell you that TMC had won in both Barrackpore and Jagatdal constituencies in 2016. TMC has fielded Somnath Shyam Ichini in Jagaddal while Arindam Bhattacharya is the BJP candidate.
At the same time, filmmaker Raj Chakraborty is a TMC candidate in Barrackpore and Chandramani Shukla is contesting on behalf of the BJP. The final phase of the assembly elections in Bengal will be held on April 29. After this, the results of the election will be announced on 2 May.
