Kolakta: After West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was allegedly attacked during her campaign in Nandigram on Wednesday evening, Republic Media Network reportedly accessed the exclusive video that encompasses the whole incident.
The visuals in the clip showed on the Republic TV clearly show that when the TMC supremo was campaigning on the road in Nandigram, the door of her car was wide open and there was a lot of crowd at the location, amid chaotic scenes.
The video shows Mamata Banerjee’s cavalcade blaring its horns as it tries to navigate packed and narrow streets. Amid the deafening sounds of the horns and the people, the CM can be seen standing precariously off the car’s front passenger seat, her hands folded between the door and its frame even as the car is moving.
A security officer can be seen holding her and the door both. The video briefly pans out as the car passes by, and then heavy commotion ensues, with the incident likely taking place in between.
When the camera next gets Mamata Banerjee in the frame, she is seen wincing in pain, having sat back in the passenger seat of the car, perhaps looking down at her leg.
CM Mamata Banerjee, 66, was allegedly attacked by a “few unknown persons” while she was returning after performing puja in a temple at Barulia Bazar in Nandigram after having filed her West Bengal polls nomination earlier in the day. She was rushed to the SSKM Hospital in Kolkata for immediate medical attention. Speaking to the reporters after the attack, Banerjee claimed that no police official was present when “4-5 people intentionally manhandled” her in public. Claiming a conspiracy behind the attack, the CM said no local police present during the program, not even the SP.
