"Anubrata, who enjoys the patronage of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, had during the 2013 rural polls in the state called his party worker to set ablaze rival party workers' houses and hurl bombs at police if they tried to prevent them."
Kolkata, May 29 - Infamous for his hate speeches and inciting party workers to unleash violence against rivals, Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mandal got a taste of his own medicine when a BJP leader in West Bengal's Birbhum district threatened to behead him.

BJP Birbhum president Dudh Kumar Mondal issued a stern warning to Anubrata, his Trinamool counterpart in the district while addressing a party workers Wednesday.

If you threaten me to cut my head, how would you feel if we chop off your head before that? If you can set one house of our workers on fire, we are able to set the entire village on fire, said Dudh Kumar even as he claimed that he did not believe in violence.

Anubrata, who enjoys the patronage of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, had during the 2013 rural polls in the state called his party worker to set ablaze rival party workers' houses and hurl bombs at police if they tried to prevent them.

Reacting to the development, state Bharatiya Janata Party president Rahul Sinha said Dudh Kumar has been cautioned for his outburst and asked to be careful about his public speeches.
