Kolkata, Apr 11 UNI | 3 months ago

Members of West Bengal Mahila Pradesh Congress Committee, the women's wing of WBPCCI, today burnt BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in effigy protesting his continuous verbal attacks on party president Sonia Gandhi and her family.

Shouting slogans against Mr Modi and several other top BJP leaders and holding anti-Modi placards, about 100 WBMPCC members assembled in front of the Pradesh Congress headquarters 'Bidhan Bhavan' here at around 1600 hours and torched the effigy while charging him with spreading canards against the top Congress leaders.

With no senior leader of the party being present at the site as all of them were busy electioneering for the five phase poll in the state from April 17, the slogan shouting WBMPCCI members left the place after lodging their protest.
