Congress Party Workers across Kolkata took to streets in protest against the Wednesday's attack on their legislators.

Congress leader Manas Bhuniya alleged that, CPM supporters chased nine Congress legislators across slushy paddy fields for 3km and stoned some of them in Burdwan on Wednesday. The Congress MLAs suffered injuries in the attack.

While Left Front 'strongly condemned' the alleged attack, Trinamool's Mamata Banerjee has called for central intervention.

In retaliation to the attack on its leaders, congress workers disrupted the normal life in Kolkata today. They torched buses and halted rail & road traffic. Congress party workers torched a bus on Howrah Bridge. Road transport and railway services were badly hit. Agitators called for a 12 hour bangla bandh on Friday.
