Several cars in the convoy, including that of BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh, were damaged in the attack. About ten BJP leaders, including Vijayvargiya and Mukul Roy, received minor injuries.
“The scenes I saw while coming here are highlights of the anarchy prevailing under Mamata Banerjee in Bengal. We were able to reach here because of the blessings of Maa Durga. TMC workers left no stones unturned to stop or finish us. This is ‘goondaraj’. I had a bullet proof car. But almost all other cars were damaged,” said J P Nadda while speaking to Karyakartas in Diamond Harbour.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah condemned the attack on BJP's party chief and "The attack on BJP's President JP Nadda today in West Bengal is highly condemnable. The Centre is taking this attack very seriously. The West Bengal government is answerable to the peaceful people of the state for this organised violence."
West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankarhad also expressed concern stating "Concerned at alarming reports of anarchy & lawlessness."
The Bengal Government has said that there was no request to provide security to Mr. Nadda. In a reaction Ms Mamata Banerjee said, “You don’t inform the state, but when there is a problem, you blame the state.”
