Over five people were injured on Thursday after violence erupted between student wings of TMC and BJP at Arambagh Kalikapur Netaji Mahavidyalaya here for allegedly raising 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans. Reportedly, a meeting of TMC's student wing was going on in the campus when the supporters of BJP allegedly started raising the slogans.

According to a source, the locals who were passing through the area also involved in the violence. The furore over 'Jai Shri Ram' slogan started after West Bengal Chief Minister Banerjee lost her cool when a group of men chanted 'Jai Shri Ram' as her convoy was passing through Bhatpara area in North 24 Parganas district earlier this month.

The BJP announced that it will send 10 lakh postcards with 'Jai Shri Ram' written on them to Banerjee. Mamata had also reprimanded people chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' slogan in North 24 Parganas saying, "They are BJP people and criminals from outside the state". She later said that BJP and said that its leaders are using the religious slogan, 'Jai Shri Ram' as their party slogan in a "misconceived manner".
