Days after BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari accused a policewoman of manhandling him during the 'Nabanna Chalo' rally, TMC MLA Idris Ali was seen wearing a kurta, taking a dig at him. The kurta worn by the TMC MLA reads 'ED, CBI cannot touch my body, I am a male'.

Taking a dig at Suvendu Adhikari, Idris Ali said, "There is a BJP leader who thinks that CBI and ED cannot touch him."

During the protests in West Bengal against the Trinamool Congress against the alleged corrupt practices, Suvendu Adhikari alleged that he was manhandled by a woman cop amid the protests.

Suvendu,leader of the opposition in West Bengal Assembly, took umbrage at police women trying to detain him amid a protest march when he shouted, 'don't touch me' on being forced to board a prison van.

“Don’t touch me. Don’t touch my body. You are a woman. Call your male colleagues," he said as some female police personnel were trying to escort him to the prison van.

"I see Maa Durga in the eyes of every woman," Adhikari was heard saying in a video posted on Facebook by party MP Locket Chatterjee, who was also detained along with him and BJP leader Rahul Sinha.

Later, TMC posted on Twitter, “@BJP4India’s 56-inch chest model busted! Proclamation of the day: “Don’t touch my body. I am male!”

Parts of Bengal turned into a battlefield on September 13 as BJP activists clashed with the police during a protest march to the state secretariat. Several police officers and saffron camp members, including leaders Mina Devi Purohit and Swapan Dasgupta, were reportedly injured in the melee.

The police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the agitators, who tried to go past the barricades that were put in place at several points in the city and its adjoining areas.
