A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Mandal President was found dead near the party office in Dinhata, Coochbehar, on Wednesday, March 24 ahead of the upcoming assembly polls, news agency ANI reported.
A BJP worker said, “It’s a pre-planned murder. They (Trinamool Congress or TMC) want us (BJP workers) to just sit at home out of fear but we will continue our fight.”
Meanwhile, Amit Malviya, National in-charge of BJP’s Information & Technology department has claimed in his tweet that BJP has lost 130 workers of their Bengal cadre due to these ‘political killings’ in the state.
He wrote, “Amit Sarkar, Mandal president of Dinhata Town, was hanged to death by TMC goons, just 72 hours before the first phase. Is this what TMC meant by Khela Hobe? West Bengal has been reduced to a blood field with political killings becoming the norm. BJP has lost over 130 of its cadres.”
