KOLKATA: Two BJP leaders have been booked for allegedly inciting people through their controversial speech at a rally in Birbhum district. An FIR has also been lodged against three other saffron party leaders who were present at the rally, the police said. BJP general secretary Kalosona Mondal, while addressing the meeting, allegedly advised the crowd to attack the police and also assured them that no action will be taken against them, police sources said. Mondal said, “Don't hit the TMC men. A case will be registered against you if you do so. Instead, attack the police and nothing will happen. Didn't you all see how a sub-inspector of Dubrajpur was killed by TMC people? There is nothing you can expect from the police in Bengal. If you show them weapons, they will listen to you. Our real opponents in the stat are the police and not TMC.”
