Kolkata, Feb 9 : Trinamool Congress MLA Satyajit Biswas from Krishnagunj was shot dead by unidentified assailant in Nadia district in West Bengal on Saturday.
District TMC president Gourishankar Dutta has blamed the BJP and followers of Mukul Roy for this murder.
The assailants pumped bullets into Biswas after he disembarked from the stage where a Saraswati Puja celebration was taking place.
“It is planned murder by BJP Minister Ratna Ghosh, Satyajit and I was invited as a guest for the programme. On a personal level he was like a son to me, he had recently got married. He was also a part of Matua Sangha and BJP were not able to attract Matua voters because of him. We will not let his death go in vain,” said TMC District President Gouri Sankar Dutta.
Matua community remained politically sensitive both for the TMC and the BJP.
However, BJP denied allegations and demanded a CBI probe into the case.
