New Delhi, May 15: Delhi BJP spokesperson Tejinder Bagga is an active BJP worker who tames controversy with ease. Delhi BJP spokesperson Tejinder Bagga was on Wednesday released, hours after being arrested by the West Bengal police following violence at Amit Shah's roadshow in Kolkata. TMC leader Derek O Brien called him an 'outsider goon'.
"Prove I was there," said an angry-sounding Tejinder Bagga.
Tejinder further adds, " Nobody takes Derek O Brien seriously. I challenge him if he can prove that I was within 500 metres of the spot where violence broke out. I will leave politics if I am proved wrong or else he should leave politics if he fails to prove the charge."Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader alleged that he was arrested from his hotel room at around 2 am. Bagga claimed that police had smashed the door of his hotel room and took him into custody. He further described the situation of West Bengal as "Emergency-like". TMC calls Amit Shah a liarTrinamool Congress spokesperson Derek O'Brien holds a press conference over the violence and the desecration of the bust of the reformist Ishwar Chanrdra Vidyasagar during BJP president Amit Shah's road show in north Kolkata yesterday.O' Brien hits out at Amit Shah saying, "I do not have words to condemn the incident. I am myself ashamed... that, as people of Bengal, we cannot respect Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar because of these BJP goons. These leaders will be leaders of the nation? Those who cannot respect icons?"Answering a question on Amit Shah's presser where the BJP president alleged that the TMC was responsible for the violation and the desecration, O'Brien said, "Amit Shah is a con-master. Amit Shah is a liar.""Anybody can come and do a procession, but what were the outsiders doing there... Who is this fellow Tejinder Bagga? Who is he? He was arrested, is he not the same guy who slapped somebody in Delhi? You have taken in your outsider goons."BJP hired goons from outside. We are not alleging that the BJP is responsible for the desecration of the Vidyasagar's statue, we have proof that they did it. The video is proof. "
