Even the leader of the opposition of the current Assembly and Secretary of the CPI(M) West Bengal State Committee, Dr. Suryakanta Mishra was hackled in his Assembly Constituency
Narayangarh. Most of the mainstream media, both electronic and print, have come out with graphic coverage of these extremely unseemly spectacle,” states the CPI (M) memorandum.
