Families of over 50 BJP workers killed in West Bengal to attend PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan

Out of the total 51 invitees, 47 are families of those who were killed during Panchayat poll violence while 5 are of those killed in the recent Lok Sabha election.

As a mark of respect, kins of over 50 BJP workers who have lost their lives in West Bengal political violence over the years have been invited to the swearing-in ceremony of the Prime Minister and his cabinet to be held in Delhi on May 30, reports Times of India.

PM Narendra Modi is set to continue for another term after it secured a significant majority in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. Unlike 2014, when BJP had secured only 2 seats in West Bengal, this time it created history by bagging 18 seats out of a total of 42. It gave the ruling party a tough fight, however, lost the lives of innumerable ground-level workers and leaders in the process. Riding high on the 2019 Lok Sabha success BJP is now eying at the 2021 Assembly elections in West Bengal.

The news report states that the families of 51 BJP workers who have lost their lives during the last West Bengal Panchayat polls and recently concluded Lok Sabha elections will be amongst the 7000 invitees for the high profile event at the Jaipur Gate of Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The family members are scheduled to leave for the capital on Wednesday by train and reach Delhi on Thursday and the supervision of senior state party functionaries.

Out of the total 51 invitees, 47 are families of those who were killed during Panchayat poll violence while 5 of those killed in the recent Lok Sabha election. The families are mostly from Barrackpore, Krishnagar, Nadia, Purulia, Malda, Bankura, West Midnapore, Jhargram, South 24 Parganas, Burdwan, Ranaghat, Birbhum and Cooch Behar.

“Support for the party is pouring in from across the state and we have to empathise with the families which lost their near and dear ones in political violence in the state”, said a BJP worker adding that messages have been sent out to BJP cadres and ground-level workers to not get intimidated as the party and its top brass stand strongly with them.

BJP has repeatedly confirmed that the party has lost almost 68 workers since Panchayat polls last year in West Bengal. West Bengal elections have always been the most bloody one. Every BJP vote in Bengal is owed to the ground level workers who have given their lifeblood for the saffron surge. Dozens of BJP workers and leaders have been brutally attacked or killed before and during the election seasons in Bengal.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is also likely to be present for the swearing-in ceremony on May 30.
