Asansol: Trinamool Asansol candidate Moon Moon Sen seems to be synonyms to frivolous remarks. After receiving flak for her bed tea comment, she came up with yet another gem.
While speaking to reporters about clashes at several polling stations in Asansol during voting for the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections, Moon Moon said, “a little violence always happens." She was speaking to reporters on clashes between Trinamool and BJP workers at several polling stations in Asansol during voting for the fourth phase of the national election on Monday.
"I have not met my seniors yet and when we will sit together I will know where and why violence took place. Thoda toh hoga hi har jagah hota hai (A little violence will happen and happens everywhere). Violence is much less now compared to before," the actor-turned-politician said, according to reports.
Sporadic violence marred Asansol elections on Monday. Several people were injured and police arrested almost 100 miscreants.
Alleged TMC goons attacked and vandalised the car of Union minister Babul Supriyo, who is fighting a BJP ticket and seeking re-election from the constituency. The paramilitary forces that are deployed for Supriyo's personal security had to rescue him.
Yesterday, Moon Moon blamed the late arrival of her bed tea for her ignorance about the violence in her constituency.
“I hadn't heard anything... they gave me my bed tea very late, so I woke up very late. What can I say? I really don't know,” Moon Moon said.
This is not the first time that Moon Moon has embarrassed the Trinamool. She has been repeatedly seen campaigning in her late mother Suchitra Sen’s name. Suchitra is perhaps the most popular Bengali actress ever and is someone with whom all Bengalis have a deep emotional connect. Moon Moon, quite brazenly, has chosen to piggyback on her mother's name instead of talking about tangible reforms that may have been done by her or the TMC.
Not only did Moon Moon use hoardings with her mother’s photos, but she was also heard saying in one of her rallies that her victory will bring peace to her mother’s soul.
