Describing the recent incidents of violence in the Bhangar area of South 24 Parganas district as “distressing and disturbing”, West Bengal Governor M.K. Narayanan said here on Wednesday that it went against the political culture of the State and was nothing but “goondaism”.

“A State like Bengal cannot accept this,” Mr. Narayanan told journalists.

He also said the police must act in an impartial manner and action must be taken against “whoever is responsible.”

“It is the responsibility of the administration to ensure that law and order is maintained,” he added.

Mr. Narayanan had also commented on the attack on senior Communist party of India (Marxist) leader Abdur Razzak Molla at Bhangar, two days ago.

“We do not subscribe to any attack on anyone including politicians,” he had said.
