North 24 Parganas: West Bengal BJP MP Arjun Singh’s vehicle in North 24 Parganas’ Halisahar area was attacked by miscreants on Sunday (July 5, 2020) evening.
Arjun who is also the vice president of West Bengal BJP was luckily not injured as he was not inside the car.
BJP has alleged that the attack was done by TMC cadres in Halisahar.
Soon after the attack, Arjun Singh took to Twitter and wrote in Hindi that meant, “Tell the place and time, and I will come. Once again there was an attack on my car by using police as a shield. It is laughable that they didn’t even check before attacking, whether someone was inside or not.”
अंधेरे की आड़ में हमला किया तो क्या किया?
जगह और समय बताओ, हम ऐसे ही आ जाएंगे।
एक बार फिर पुलिस को कवच बनाकर मेरी गाड़ी पर कायराना हमला।

A TMC party office in Halishar was also vandalised within minutes after the attack on the MP.
TMC has alleged that the ones who have set the party office on fire were Arjun Singh’s men and it was a part of their counter-attack.
Minutes later, unknown persons vandalised and torched the TMC party office in Halisahar. While TMC claims that BJP workers were behind the vandalism & torching of the party office, BJP alleges that they have nothing to do with the attack on the TMC party office. pic.twitter.com/sMR1LjPZAA
