Dilip Ghosh, state President of BJP, West Bengal, has alleged that the present State Government has adopted the policy of violence to destroy the opposition. They have created an environment of fear and violence in society
On September 7, a group of armed men attacked the house of BJP worker Arun Naskar, a resident of Raghudebpur village under Bishnupur police station in the southern suburbs of the city.
The band had come looking for Arun Naskar at home during the day of lockdown in Bengal. Arun was not at home. His wife, Radharani Naskar, was at home. The men initially beat her up. One of them hit her on the head with the butt of a pistol. Radharani somehow managed to escape and went inside the house. The miscreants followed her inside. Radharani then tried to chase them away with a broom at which one of the men opened fire. A bullet hit Radharani on her head.
The seriously injured woman was first rushed to a local health centre and later shifted to SSKM Hospital in Kolkata. She was operated in the afternoon but her condition continues to be critical.
Arun Naskar has complained against the local Trinamool MLA in this context. According to Arun, “The armed goons of the TMC MLA Dilip Mandal have organised this attack on my wife because I happen to be a BJP supporter.” Local BJP leader, Abhijit Das, has expressed his concern that there is a well thought out plan of TMC to kill BJP activists. BJP workers are threatened with death, and TMC has successfully created an environment of terror with bands of miscreants. Dilip Ghosh, state President of BJP, West Bengal, has alleged that the present State Government has adopted the policy of violence to destroy the opposition. They have created an environment of fear and violence in society.
The TMC MLA, Dilip Mandal, however, refuted the allegations. He tried to present the incident as a matter of dispute between people of two adjacent neighbourhoods. He further alleged that BJP activists are inciting violence in different places in an attempt to prove lawlessness in the state. This, according to him, is a strategy of BJP to malign the ruling party.
Amid all these allegations and counter-allegations, the fact remains that a woman was beaten up by a group of men in broad daylight and she was shot on the head when she protested. Radharani Naskar, the wife of BJP worker Arun Naskar, is currently battling for her life in Kolkata.
