Asansol: After making ‘bed tea was late’ remark, Trinamool Congress’s candidate Moon Moon Sen said, “A little violence always happens”.
On Monday, clashes between Trinamool and BJP workers were reported at several polling stations in Asansol during the fourth phase of elections.
Half a dozen people were injured and over 100 people were arrested following clashes.
"I have not met my seniors yet and when we will sit together I will know where and why violence took place. Thoda toh hoga hi har jagah hota hai (A little violence will happen and happens everywhere). Violence is much less now compared to before," Sen said, reported news agency ANI.
Earlier on Monday, Sen said she “hadn’t heard anything” because she had woken up late.
"They gave me my bed tea very late so I woke up very late. What can I say? I really don't know," she added.
Moon Moon Sen had a stunning political victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections when she defeated the CPI(M) strongman Basudeb Acharia from Bankura. In this election, she is contesting from Asansol against BJP’s candidate Babul Supriyo.
