Kolkata: West Bengal minister and senior Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Firhad Hakim has become entangled in a raging controversy due to his controversial comments against the BJP.
According to media reports, while addressing a Trinamool Congress (TMC) rally at Majerhat in Kolkata, Firhad Hakim allegedly urged the party's workers and supporters to attack BJP workers.
Firhad Hakim is no stranger to controversy. Earlier, he had caused an uproar by referring to a Muslim area of Kolkata as 'mini Pakistan'. He had also addressed a Trinamool Congress (TMC) event inside a mosque in blatant violation of the 'Model Code of Conduct' of the Election Commission.
West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has also been accused of inflamatory statements by the BJP. These accusations gained renewed strength after 4 people were killed and 4 others were injured when CISF soldiers opened fire at Sitalkuchi village of Cooch Behar district during the fourth phase of the West Bengal Election 2021.
The CISF and the West Bengal Police have claimed that hundreds of people had attacked polling booth number 126 at Sitalkuchi village in Cooch Behar district and had tried to snatch away the rifles of the CISF soldiers.
