Meanwhile, on Wednesday, BJP president JP Nadda said that at least 14 BJP workers have been killed during the post-election violence that erupted following the victory of Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress in West Bengal. On Wednesday, Nandigram MLA and BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari said that over one lakh people have already fled Bengal since the post-poll violence erupted in West Bengal.
In recently concluded polls, TMC won 213 out of 292 seats while BJP won 77 seats. Following the election victory, the Trinamool workers have been unleashing rampant violence against their political opponents, including BJP workers and those of CPM and even Congress. Several BJP karyakartas are said to have been killed brutally in the apparent victory celebration by the TMC. In a gruesome incident, BJP’s Avijit Sarkar was lynched to death along with his pet puppies allegedly by the TMC’s bloodthirsty cadre.
