The victim was beaten severely with bricks leading to severe bleeding with multiple injuries on his head and body. He was taken to a nearby hospital for medical aid.
BJP candidate from Bankura, Dr Subhash Sarkar, accused TMC of carrying out the deadly attack on the opposition. He also said that the victim's chances of survival were really low considering the grave injuries inflicted on him.
"Trinamool has done this, who else? Violence, bloodshed and destroying democracy- this is TMC's job. Looking at how badly he is hurt, the chances of our worker's survival is low," Sarkar said talking to ANI.
Sarkar is pitted against TMC's Subrata Mukherjee in the Bankura Lok Sabha constituency.
Earlier, ahead of the commencement of polling in West Bengal on Sunday, three BJP workers were attacked in separate incidents, officials said.
