“Mukul Roy and Kailash Vijayvargiya were injured in the attack today. It is a shame on democracy,” Nadda said.
“There isn’t a car in our convoy which was not attacked. I am safe because I was travelling in a bulletproof car. This state of lawlessness and intolerance in West Bengal has to end,” Nadda said while speaking at a public meeting at South 24 Paraganas in WestBengal
