A BJP delegation, comprising several ministers and parliamentarians, Wednesday met Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu over the violence during party chief Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata and sought his intervention.
The party delegation, which included Union ministers Prakash Javadekar, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Vijay Goel, also referred to “murderous” attack on Shah during the roadshow on Tuesday and alleged the involvement of the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress.
Rajya Sabha members Anil Baluni, G V L Narasimha Rao and Rakesh Sinha, besides Kamarsu, were also in the BJP delegation.
Shah had told reporters earlier that it would have been difficult for him to survive the attack but for the protection of the CRPF, a central police force.
The TMC has, however, blamed the BJP for the violence.
