Three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs were detained in Siliguri in West Bengal on charges of violating lockdown rules. However, all three were later released today.
These three MLAs – Shankar Ghosh, Anandamay Burman, and Shikha Chattopadhyay were protesting against the state government in North Bengal over Corona’s rising deaths at the Safdar Hasami Chowk in Siliguri.
Taking a jibe at the BJP MLAs, a senior Trinamool leader said that these MLAs have betrayed the people of their constituency, as they organized protests at a time like lockdown. He said, “People should see the real face of BJP leaders. They are less worried about the spread of the virus.”
Notably, a 15-day lockdown has been implemented in West Bengal on Sunday. The government has taken several stringent measures to prevent the spread of corona.
