Amit Shah slams Mamata govt after another BJP worker found hanging
New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah today slammed Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government after another party worker was found hanging from a high-tension tower in Purulia’s Balrampur on Saturday.
Attacking the state government over continued brutality and violence, Shah tweeted, “Distressed to know about yet another killing of BJP karyakarta Dulal Kumar in Balrampur, West Bengal. This continued brutality and violence in the land of West Bengal is shameful and inhuman. Mamata Banerjee’s government has completely failed to maintain law and order in the state.”
Amit Shah further added, “I express my deepest condolences to the bereaved family. I along with millions of BJP karyakartas share grief of Dulal Kumar’s family. May God give his family the strength to withstand this irreparable loss. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.”
The BJP worker, who has been identified as Dulal Kumar,32, was found hanging from by a pole in Dabha village of Purulia’s Balarampur.
Meanwhile, the BJP has urged the National Human Rights Commission to conduct a probe into the alleged murder of its party workers.
After Amit Shah, Javadekar also slams Mamata govt
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday equated the alleged murder of its party workers in West Bengal’s Purulia district to a ‘political murder’
“It’s a political murder…so far 19 BJP workers have been killed. The recent killings in West Bengal are inhuman. We condemn this brutal political murder and the murder culture. The people of West Bengal will teach a lesson to those who indulge in such acts. Political murder has no place in a democracy,” Union Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar said in a press conference.
The BJP leader further claimed that in the wake of recent incidents, the West Bengal state election commission has become the “Mamata election commission.”
“I challenge to say, if in Purulia district there would have been fare elections we would have been the ruling party. However, the state election commission has become Mamata election commission,” he said.
Earlier in the day, the body of a BJP worker, Dulal Kumar, who went missing on Friday, was found hanging from a pole in Balarampur of Purulia district.
This comes a week after the body of another BJP activist, Trilochan Mahato, was found hanging from a tree in the same district on May 30.
