Taking to Twitter, the BJP MP slammed the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal.

"Bombs were thrown in front of my house on September 8. This morning, bombs were thrown behind the house. Criminals have no fear because they have protection from the TMC and West Bengal Police. Criminals are roaming freely. The police have become the slave of Trinamool. I will be never afraid of such attacks," he tweeted.
