In another gruelling incident, a BJP worker was found hanging from a tree near his house in West Bengal's East Midnapore district on Wednesday (29 July), reports New Indian Express.
As per the report, the body of 44-year-old Purnachandra Das, a booth president of BJP in the Ramnagar area of the East Midnapore district, was found hanging from a tree by locals.
The Bhartiya Janata Party has alleged that he was killed by goons of the ruling Trinamool Congress as he had refused to join them. The ruling TMC has, however, denied the allegation terming them as ‘completely baseless’.
According to family members of Das, the TMC leaders were pressuring the BJP leaders to quit the saffron party and join TMC.
“But he was not willing to do so. Today a meeting was scheduled to be held with local TMC leaders. Later in the evening, he was found hanging. We want the truth to come out,” a member of his family reportedly said.
This incident comes only two weeks after the body of BJP MLA Debendra Nath Roy was found hanging from a place near his residence at Bindal in Uttar Dinajpur district in a suspicious manner.
