Bhatpara has been in turmoil since the morning of Municipal Election 2022. Arjun Singh, the ‘Betaj Badshah’ of Barrackpore, complained that he could not vote. The BJP MP complained that he could not cast his vote in his own ward, Ward No. 18 of Bhatpara Municipality. After that, Arjun Singh was seen entering the polling booth again. BJP MP Arjun Singh returned to the field after receiving the news that ‘outsiders are trying to hijack the booth’.
“Only Police and goons are voting here. Voters are scared to vote, especially the Bengali population, who are not being allowed to vote. Even TMC’s core vote bank, Muslims are not able to vote. Police here is playing one of the 3 monkeys of Gandhiji” said West Bengal BJP vice-president.
There is a lot of tension in Bhatpara around the Municipal Election 2022. Arjun Singh lost his temper at the polls. BJP MPs got into a scuffle with the police. He was even seen slapping a protester.

Police are trying to stop both sides. Police barricaded and tried to stop him. At the same time, a BJP MP was seen slapping a protester.
The Trinamool Congress has lodged a complaint against Arjun Singh with the Election Commission.
