Congress” West Bengal in charge Jitin Prasada alleged on Tuesday that his party cadres were attacked by Trinamool Congress workers and even women and children were not spared.

“The post-poll violence that has been unleashed by the TMC on the Congress workers is unacceptable. Even women and children are not spared. I’m sure the people of West Bengal did not vote for this lawlessness,” Prasad said on Twitter.

He said the duty of every politician or public servant is to speak up against “all wrongs and stand by their cadre irrespective of which ideology one belongs to”.

Asked about the post-poll violence taking place in West Bengal after the Trinamool Congress” victory in the state, Congress spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil said his party never condones such violence.

“Congress has never supported any kind of violence. The Congress party never condones or supports any kind of violence. There is no place for violence in a democracy,” he said.

“We expect that if Mamata Banerjee has received so much love and votes in Bengal, she should control the violence,” he said.
