Led by MLA and its president Agnimitra Paul, the state BJP Mahila Morcha gathered outside Bhawani Bhawan for a “law violation programme” against post-poll violence and other crimes.
Kolkata Police stopped them from carrying out their agitation and arrestd 45 party workers, including Paul.
“The state government is using violence as a tool to target BJP workers and their family members. Post-poll violence is continuing unabated in the state. Police are doing nothing. Today, we gave a call for the law violation programme to protest against this,” said Paul after her arrest.
Similar programmes were also held in Bankura, West Midnapore, Howrah and North 24 Parganas districts.
