A day after
A day after his house was attacked by alleged Trinamool Congress supporters, Union Minister Babul Supriyo met Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Since the arrest of senior TMC leader and party MP Sudip Bandopadhyay by CBI two days back the party have decided to hold protests in several parts of the country alleging that the PMO was behind the move.
Speaking to reporters after meeting his senior cabinet colleague, Babul Supriyo today said he doesn’t want to make the attack on his house an issue and everyone of his family members is safe, the attack on ground level BJP workers in West Bengal is wrong
