Trinamool Congress goons brutally murdered an 18-year-old BJP leader in Balarampur, Purulia district. The victim, Trilochan Mahato, was kidnapped by the Trinamool goons on Tuesday. His body was later found hanging from a tree on Wednesday with a poster stuck on his back stating that it was a punishment for being a BJP worker.
According to media reports, the handwritten poster, in Bengali language, stuck on his body reads, "This is for doing BJP politics from age 18. Been trying to kill you since the vote. Failed. Today you are dead." The local police have filed an FIR and investigating the case. The body has been sent for post-mortem.
Reacting to the gruesome murder, BJP national president Amit Shah expressed condolence in a tweet and said, "Deeply hurt by the brutal killing of our young karyakarta, Trilochan Mahato in Balarampur, West Bengal. A young life full of possibilities was brutally taken out under state’s patronage. He was hanged on a tree just because his ideology differed from that of state-sponsored goons."
"The present TMC govt in West Bengal has surpassed the violent legacy of Communist rule. Entire BJP mourns this tragic loss and stands firmly with Trilochan Mahato’s family in this hour of grief. His sacrifice for organisation and ideology will not go in vain. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti," he added.
Union minister and BJP MP from Asansol, Babul Supriyo lashed out at the TMC and compared West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with Adolf Hitler.
"A life was lost at such a ripe age. What was his fault? Just that he supported BJP. Madam's activities resemble somewhat to that of Hitler. My condolences to the family of Trilochan Mahato who was killed by Trinamool's goon army. #TMChhi," he said in a tweet.
BJP national leadership has demanded a CBI probe into the gruesome murder of Trilochan. They also alleged that the murder was an outcome of TMC insecurity after the BJP did well in the panchayat elections.
