The youth wing of the Trinamul Congress took a different way to protest against the attack on Abhishek Banerjee in Tripura. They went to Ganga to protest. They walked into the river and stood in the knee-deep water as a symbolic protest to the attack. They also said that they will protest daily on this issue.
But the BJP mocked their protest. BJP Howrah District President Surojit Saha said: “When our leaders used to come from Delhi, they were called outsiders and attacked. Now, look at what they are doing? They are going to a different State. They are trying to divert attention from NHRC.”
