Today, he died at the SSKM (Seth Sukhlal Karnani Memorial) Hospital. I pray for his departed soul. I stand by his family in such hard times.” In a video uploaded by the BJP MLA, he was seen paying his tribute to the deceased Debabrata Maity.
৩রা মে নন্দীগ্রামের চিল্লগ্রামের বাসিন্দা দেবব্রত মাইতি তৃণমূল আশ্রিত দুষ্কৃতীদের হামলায় গুরুতর আহত হন।— Suvendu Adhikari • শুভেন্দু অধিকারী (@SuvenduWB) May 13, 2021
আজ এসএসকেএম হাসপাতালে তাঁর মৃত্যু হয়।
তাঁর বিদেহী আত্মার শান্তি কামনা করি।
এই কঠিন পরিস্থিতিতে তাঁর পরিবারের পাশে আছি। pic.twitter.com/aZd44UldQi
Suvendu Adhikari stated, “Shri Debabrata Maity was a Voter in my constituency #Nandigram. Was. I’m in disbelief even using the word. Is this the consequence of exercising one’s franchise? He was killed for the crime of using his Constitutional right to vote. Numbed beyond words at this senseless violence.”
Paid my tributes to him earlier tonight. Prayed to God for the departed Soul. May it attain Eternal Peace.— Suvendu Adhikari • শুভেন্দু অধিকারী (@SuvenduWB) May 13, 2021
I stand with his Family in this hour of grief. Not just as their MLA, but also as a son of this pious soil.
I am sure the great People of West Bengal stand with them, too. pic.twitter.com/P97v29Pru8

Post-poll violence in West Bengal by TMC
After TMC’s thumping victory in West Bengal, its party workers have unleashed terror on the workers and supporters of BJP and other opposition parties. As per some social media reports, at least ten BJP karyakartas are said to have been killed brutally in the apparent victory celebration by the TMC. BJP’s Avijit Sarkar was lynched to death along with his puppies allegedly by the TMC’s bloodthirsty cadre.
The party offices of the BJP were burnt down to ashes at various locations. After horrifying videos of women being attacked and assaulted by the TMC goons surfaced on social media, the Chairperson of NCW Rekha Sharma reached the state of West Bengal to take stock of the situation and provide relief to the affected. A CRPF unit was sent to BJP’s Purbasthali Uttar candidate Dr Gobardhan Das’s village after he was trapped inside his home along with his family members including the elderly as TMC hoodlums hurled bombs.
