Trinamool goons brutally lynched a BJP activist to death for chanting Jai Shree Ram in West Bengal's Nadia district on Saturday.
Krishna Debnath, hailing from Swarupnagar in Nadia district's Nabadwip, was rushed to a local hospital but he succumbed to injuries, after being shifted to Kolkata's NRS Medical College.
According to reports, family members found him lying by the roadside on Friday evening.
Protesting the murder of Debnath, BJP workers sat blocking a road in Nabadwip with his body for nearly an hour on Saturday morning.
"He was beaten up by the Trinamool Congress goons for chanting the name of Ram. Trinamool is resorting to such brutality to intimidate our workers. We blocked the road because police has not taken any actions against the accused persons yet," agencies quoted a BJP leader from Nabadwip.
The state BJP President Dilip Ghosh said the TMC was beating up BJP workers for chanting "Jai Shree Ram" in West Bengal, while the police was throwing them into jail.
"The TMC claims that people are being lynched across the country for not chanting 'Jai Shree Ram'. But the truth is that in West Bengal people are being attacked, lynched and put behind bars for chanting 'Jai Shree Ram'," Ghosh said.
"Chanting the name of Ram is not banned in India. Trinamool says they have no problems in accepting Lord Ram. Then why can't they tolerate the 'Jai Shree Ram' chant? Why such intolerance? The more intolerant they become, the more people will chant this slogan. If they think they will be able to stop people by beating them or labelling false cases against them, they are living in a fool's paradise," he added.
