Uttar Pradesh: Local BJP leader attacked in Mathura on polling day, party blames SP for attack

BJP leader, Chetan Swaroop alleged that some Samajwadi Party workers who had threatened Ramji Lal earlier were behind the assault.

After the second phase of polling concluded on April 18, a local BJP leader, Ramji Lal, who was sitting outside the polling station was attacked by some miscreants in Ranchi Bangar in Mathura Lok Sabha constituency.

Ramji Lal was grievously injured in the attack and was rushed to the hospital with head injuries. He was reportedly hit with iron rods.

Another BJP leader, Chetan Swaroop alleged that some Samajwadi Party workers who had threatened Ramji Lal earlier were behind the assault.

However, Senior Superintendent of Police, Anirudh Pankaj said, “There was some sort of clash between two BJP factions, including Sumit Verma, Hari Om Yadav, and Ramji Lal on Wednesday. Thereafter, on polling day, Arun, brother of Hari Om Yadav allegedly attacked Ramji Lal. The investigation is underway. A police team has been sent for further enquiry.”

The doctor who treated Ramji Lal in Mathura said, “There was an injury on Ramji Lal’s head. After the first aid, he has been referred to Agra for further treatment. His condition is stable.

In the recent past, there have been innumerable such attacks on BJP and RSS leaders, with few turning out to be fatal. Recently, a local BJP leader, Manguli Jena was shot dead by unknown assailants at Khurda, 25 km away from Bhubaneswar. Three rounds of bullets were fired when Jena was speaking to the BJP MLA candidate near the road. Jena, 52, was killed on the spot.

In Jammu and Kashmir, RSS leader Chandrakant Sharma was killed inside a hospital last week by Islamist terrorists. In Dantewada, Chhattisgarh, BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi was killed by Naxals in a powerful IED blast. On Saturday, a 75-year old BJP supporter was also killed by DMK-Congress workers in Tamil Nadu.

Yesterday, the mutilated body of the local BJP worker Santosh Pati was found in a village in Bhanjanagar while another BJP worker Sishupal Sahish was found hanging in Purulia, West Bengal.
