West Bengal: BJP worker found dead hanging from a tree, BJP blames ruling TMC

According to the Tweet put out on the party's state unit official handle, the man who has been brutally hanged to death was identified as Barsha Hansda, a tribal BJP worker from Paschim Medinipur in West Bengal.

In yet another horrific incident, a BJP worker was allegedly killed by TMC workers in West Bengal. In an image shared by the West Bengal unit of Bharatiya Janata Party on November 15 (Friday), a man can be seen hanging from a tree. According to the Tweet put out on the party’s state unit official handle, the man who has been brutally hanged to death was identified as Barsha Hansda, a tribal BJP worker from Paschim Medinipur in West Bengal.

Holding the ruling TMC goons responsible for this heinous act, BJP Bengal tweeted, “Barsha Hansda, a tribal BJP worker from Paschim Medinipur, was hanged to death by TMC goons. Why are the liberals so silent now on these brutal political murders in TMC ruled West Bengal? Would they be so silent if this was a BJP ruled state?”

According to reports, the incident followed clashes between BJP and TMC workers earlier this week. On Tuesday, several BJP workers were booked by police for a clash with TMC workers on Monday. Barsha Hansda was among the BJP workers against whom police had registered the cases. On Thursday, BJP workers had protested against this saying that the party workers were booked under false charges. Barsha Hansda was also part of this protest. And the next day on Friday, Hansda’s body was found hanging from a tree near his house.

The incident was subsequently shared by the party’s West Bengal president Dilip Ghosh who condemned the horrific incident and blamed TMC for targeting BJP karyakarta’s in West Bengal.

In his two tweet posts, Ghosh wrote: “Shame TMC shame! Barsha Hansda of Santoshpur (Dantan, Paschim Medinipur Zela) brutally killed and his body hung on a tree.”

“This active vibrant party karyakarta from the Adivasi community loved BJP. So he was hunted down by the #PoliticalTerrorists of TMC. To create fear through terror was, is and will always be the political mantra of TMC,” he added.

West Bengal has been a witness to several such incidents in the past where BJP workers have fallen prey to the angst of TMC goons who have unleashed their inhumanity and barbaric on these innocent workers, especially since BJP has made successful inroads into the state. BJP has long been alleging that its workers are being targetted and killed for political reasons.

In one of such several incidents reported, BJP minority cell member Amir Ali was killed in a clash in Hooghly on October 30. Blaming the TMC goons for the murder, the BJP had then called for a 12-hour bandh in West Bengal’s Arambagh district.

On October 12, it was reported that yet another BJP worker hailing from Ranaghat in TMC ruled West Bengal’s Nadia district has been brutally shot dead. According to reports, 50-year-old BJP leader Harlal Debnath of booth number 21 of Habibpur Panchayat of Ranaghat police station was returning home after closing his shop late at night when he was shot dead on October 11 (Friday) night by some miscreants.
