The State Congress on Thursday said that thousands of party workers would court arrest if the charges against party MP and Minister of State for Railways, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, who has been named by the West Bengal police in connection with the murder of a Trinamool Congress leader, were not withdrawn.

 “If Adhir Chowdhury is arrested, the entire State will be on fire,” State Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya said, addressing a rally in the city.
