The gruesome image shared by the BJP shows that the two workers were hanged from a tree, tied together with a rope. The two murders are the latest in a spree of post poll violence that has claimed the life of many.
Despite the rampant violence, senior TMC leaders were in denial of it and accused the BJP of peddling propaganda. However, later, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself acknowledged the violence and announced compensation for the kin of victims.
Meanwhile, the Governor of West Bengal had urged Mamata Banerjee to get the law and order situation in the state under control at the earliest during Banerjee’s oath taking ceremony. The MHA has also constituted a 4-member panel to assess the ground situation in the state and submit its report on post-poll violence to the Union Home Ministry.
