In this context, Shilbhadra Dutt later told reporters, “I was sitting in a tea shop drinking tea. At that time a bomb was thrown at the back of my car. Spinner flies up to the tea shop. Then my bodyguards took me out of there. This is to create an atmosphere of fear on the day before the vote. The Trinamool Congress is responsible for this. But I will win from here. ” However, the ruling party has denied the allegations. It has been made clear that they have no hand behind this incident.
