BJP workers killed in Amethi, Barrackpore, Indore after BJP registered an unprecedented victory in Lok Sabha elections

Post-poll violence continue in states where the BJP did well continue.

A day after BJP worker was killed in Amethi after BJP’s Smriti Irani registered a historic win, a BJP worker was shot dead by unidentified assailants last night in Bhatapara of North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal. BJP’s Arjun Singh beat TMC’s sitting MP Dinesh Trivedi in a closely held electoral battle.

As per reports, the incident took place last night when BJP worker Chandan Shaw was returning home last night at around 10:30 pm. Four assailants stopped him and one of them shot at him from a close range. The assailants also reportedly hurled bombs at him.

Another BJP worker Nemichand Tanwar was also reportedly shot dead in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. The family has alleged that he was killed as he didn’t vote for Congress. The 65-year-old BJP worker was shot dead on Sunday. Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan hit back on CM Kamal Nath and said that he wants to convert MP into West Bengal where violence like this is rampant.

Shaw’s murder comes close on the heels of BJP worker and Amethi MP Smriti Irani’s close aide Surendra Singh was shot dead by unknown assailants after he was returning from celebrations of BJP victory.

In both the Lok Sabha constituencies, Amethi and Barrackpore, BJP registered a historic win. While Smriti Irani defeated the Gandhi family scion and Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, BJP’s Arjun Singh defeated TMC’s sitting MLA Dinesh Trivedi in Barrackpore.

Bengal has seen a very violent elections which has continued even after the elections got over. Just after the seventh phase of polling concluded, before the results were out, a BJP worker was reportedly shot at and another BJP worker’s shop was torched in West Bengal.
