West Bengal: Female BJP worker found hanging in Midnapore, BJP alleges harassment by TMC

TMC denied the allegations, claiming that there was a conflict in her family, due to which the woman committed suicide. The police have also claimed that the case has no political angle.

A woman activist from the Bharatiya Janata Party, Kalpana Bhuiyan, was found dead in Keshpur in West Bengal’s West Midnapore district on Tuesday. Her body was found hanging near ward number 4 in Golad Gram Panchayat’s Ammudiya Village, reports Zee News.

The death of the BJP Mahila Morcha activist has ignited a political furore in the area. Her fellow workers in the BJP are blaming the TMC workers for the alleged suicide. They are claiming that Bhuiyan was mentally tortured and humiliated by the TMC cadres which forced her to take such extreme step.

Meanwhile, TMC has denied the allegations, claiming that there was a conflict in her family, due to which the woman committed suicide. They have stated that Bhuiyan’s death was a suicide due to personal issues and it has no political angle.

The police also claimed that there was no political angle to the incident. However, an investigation into the matter is underway.

BJP has been on the receiving end of political violence in West Bengal since before the Panchayat Elections in 2018. Many BJP workers have been brutally murdered in West Bengal before and after the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls. However, the political tussle between the BJP and TMC has become bloodier after BJP won a remarkable 18 seats in the Lok Sabha polls.

Innumerable incidents have been reported where TMC goons have unleashed their atrocities on BJP workers and supporters converting West Bengal into a battle zone.

Addressing a gathering at Kolkata’s ICCR auditorium during the BJP membership drive on July 7, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh had claimed that over 72 party workers have been reportedly killed between April and July this year. “Since April, a single day has not passed when reports of atrocities on our workers did not surface,” the BJP MP added.

Earlier, BJP leader Mukul Roy had alleged that all the incidents of violence in the state are being carried out at the behest of TMC Supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with the support of the administration.

Moreover, the BJP had observed a ‘black day’ in the state and called for a 12-hour general strike in the Basirhat sub-division last month, in the aftermath of the face-off which ensued between the BJP and West Bengal Police in Sandeshkhali, North 24 Parganas district which had claimed the lives of five BJP workers.

In the wake of such incidents of violence in the State, the BJP had also demanded the resignation of West Bengal Chief Minister and All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) Chief Mamata Banerjee as the Home Minister of West Bengal.
