BJP worker murdered in West Bengal, party accuses TMC backed sand mafia

Recently, the ruling TMC had denied permission to BJP's Rath Yatra campaign in the state, claiming it will lead to the spreading of communal hatred.

In another instance of a political violence, a block level BJP worker in West Bengal has been killed on Sunday night. According to BJP MP Babul Supriyo, Sandip Ghosh, Rupganj Booth president of Asansol-Durgapur Kanksha Block, was returning from a party meeting on Sunday night when he was brutally murdered.

Four other workers along with Sandip were injured in the attack. The four are currently hospitalised. Babul Supriyo said that all four have alleged that TMC sponsored sand mafia Saiful is behind the attack.

The Union Minister furthered that such an act of TMC won’t be forgiven and it is just a matter of time before the ruling party in Bengal perishes.

The political scuffles between TMC and BJP have consumed several lives in the recent past. Acts of political violence are becoming common and frequent in West Bengal.

Amongst the string of murders reported recently, a BJP worker, Dharmaraj Hazra, 54 years old, was found dead in a lake with his hands and feet tied with a rope in July this year. Prior to this, two similar incidents of BJP party workers being brutally murdered in West Bengal’s Purulia district were also reported. In the first case, an 18-year-old BJP worker named Trilochan Mahato was murdered in Purulia’s Balrampur. Just a few days later another body of a BJP worker was found hanging from a high tension pole in the same region.

Similarly, in June 2018, a BJP worker named Narayan Sarkar was shot dead, allegedly by TMC workers, in Cooch Behar.

Earlier in the month of April, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker, Ajit Murmu, had died in the hospital where he was admitted after being allegedly thrashed by TMC workers in Bankura’s Ranibandh.

The recent Panchayat elections in the state were the epicentre of extreme political violence and murders. There were numerous instances of murders, attacks and vandalism. Even ballot boxes were looted and found destroyed in multiple areas. The TMC government is being charged with employing goons to intimidate its political rivals.

Recently, the ruling TMC had denied permission to BJP’s Rath Yatra campaign in the state, claiming it will lead to the spreading of communal hatred. BJP president Amit Shah had lashed out at the Mamata Banerjee government claiming that the TMC is scared of BJP’s rising stature in the state.
