The TMC candidate from Asansol claimed her bed tea was served late so she overslept and that was why she was completely at sea about the clashes. “They gave me my bed tea very late so I woke up very late. What can I say? I really don’t know,” she told NDTV. Also Read - 'Nusrat Jahan Missing' Posters Surface in Her Lok Sabha Constituency Basirhat. Here's Why

However, contrary to the reports, Sen claimed that violence in Bengal had reduced from the days of Communist Party of India (M) rule. She also said that Bengal wasn’t the only state to report of political clashes; they took place across the country.

As soon as she was told about the allegations of violence made by her political rival, Sen said, “I don’t want to hear his name. Bas (that’s it).”

In the 2014 elections, Sen had defeated the CPI(M) strongman Basudeb Acharia from Bankura.
