In her speech to the town yesterday, Mamata Banerjee had called for calm and blamed the BJP for the violence.

"Bengal is a peace-loving place," said the Chief Minister, who won a third consecutive term in the state. “During the elections, there was some heat and dust… The BJP did a lot of torture, also the CAPF. But I ask everyone to calm down. Don't get carried away by violence. If there is a dispute, report it to the police. The police must administer law and order, ”he added.

The BJP has claimed that eight people, including party workers and their families, were killed in violence by Trinamool workers in six districts. One person died in Calcutta and another in nearby Sonarpur.

The Trinamool Congress has claimed that two of its workers were beaten to death in the East Bardhaman district. On Sunday night, in an alleged confrontation between Trinamool and BJP, a 55-year-old man was killed in Raina, also in the East Bardhaman district.
