The Union minister later told a tv channel, “I as an MP of Asansol constituency visited various schools in my area to raise awareness about hygiene and cleanliness. I got a very good response. But only in one school J K Nagar High school, an official of the school governing body opposed my visit citing various reasons.”Supriyo said, “I could sniff a political conspiracy in the letter sent to me. I still went to the school and received a huge response from students there. When I was coming out of the school some local TMC activists under a leader Jitendra blocked my car and used abusive language.” “Later on the police removed the activists. How could I be stopped from visiting a school?” the minister said.
