New Delhi, July 20 : Bharatiya Janta Party has been falsely claiming that BJP workers are being hacked to death by Trinamool Congress party workers in West Bengal under Mamata Banerjee’s rule as a recent case has come to light in which two persons died in a conflict but the Saffron party termed it as a political murder.

Dipak Mahato, 27 and his father, Lalmohon Mahato, 52 were hacked to death in Purulia, West Bengal on Wednesday, 11 July.

“My husband and son were not a part of any political party. They died in a conflict after an accident. It was not a political murderPhulbori Devi, wife of 52-year-old Lalmohan Mohato said, reported by the Quint.

The state BJP has claimed, in a press release, that the two belonged to the OBC category and that they worked for the party in Turuhulu village. The party has alleged that the Trinamool Congress is to blame for the deaths since the father-son duo protested the TMC’s policies.

 

 

Within hours of their death, the BJP Twitter handles were abuzz claiming that both were “OBC BJP workers” who were killed by the ruling Trinamool Congress.

The Mahatos live in a remote village connected by 4 kms of muddy, unmotorable roads to the nearest Kenda block of Purulia, mostly populated by STs and OBCs.

BJP President Amit Shah blamed TMC for the killing of BJP workers and said that in Mamata’s regime, West Bengal has become an epitome of violence and  brutality.

An 18-year-old, purportedly a BJP worker, was found dead in Balarampur, West Bengal, on 30 May 2018. While the victim’s identity couldn’t be independently verified, BJP President Amit Shah posted a tweet claiming that the victim’s name was “Trilochan Mahato,” and that he was a BJP karyakarta.

In his tweets, Shah said the life of young BJP worker, Trilochan Mahato, was “taken under the state’s patronage” because his ideology was different from that of “state-sponsored goons”.
BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya claimed that 18 party workers have been killed in the state and alleged that it was at the behest of the state government.

The party’s national secretary Rahul Sinha said , “The TMC wants to eliminate all signs of opposition from the areas where BJP has won (in the rural poll)”.
