WB BJP chief demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleging that she has failed to maintain law and order in the State.

In yet another case of political violence, a BJP worker named Krishna Debnath succumbed to his injuries after he was brutally beaten up by Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, as alleged by BJP.

The incident took place in Nadia district of West Bengal. 24-year old Krishna Debnath hailed from Swarupnagar locality in Nadia district’s Nabadwip area. Debnath was found lying on the roadside by his family members on Friday who immediately rushed him to the nearby hospital. He was referred to NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata where he was declared dead.

Enraged BBJP workers blocked roads in Nabadwip for around an hour with Debnath’s body demanding justice for him. State BJP President Dilip Gosh said that people are being attacked in the State for chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. “The truth is that in West Bengal people are being attacked, lynched and thrown behind bars for chanting Jai Shri Ram”, said Ghosh. He demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleging that she has failed to maintain law and order in the State.

BJP MP from Asansol, Babul Supriyo tweeted that ‘Mamata Banerjee’s bloodthirsty politics will soon see its end’.

BJP’s allegations have, however, been denied by senior TMC leader Gouri Shankar Dutt who called the allegations ‘completely baseless and politically fabricated’. “This is a baseless allegation. The person was beaten up not for chanting Jai Shri Ram but for misbehaving with women after getting drunk. Our party workers are in no way involved with the incident”, said Dutt.

According to reports, a complaint has been filed on the basis of the allegations of the family of Debnath. Debnath used to work as a chef in Chennai, he had come to visit his family in West Bengal last week.
