Another BJP worker killed in post-poll violence, Suvendu Adhikari pays tribute

KOLKATA: In yet another incident of political violence in the State of West Bengal, a BJP worker succumbed to his injuries after being attacked by Trinamool Congress hoodlums.

TV9 journalist Anindya had shared the details of the incident on Twitter. According to him, the deceased BJP worker has been identified as one Debabrata Maity. He was attacked by ‘political opponents’ on May 03, a day after the West Bengal results were announced. Maity, who was admitted to a hospital following injuries, has now passed away.

BJP MLA from Nandigram, Suvendu Adhikari, has further informed that the BJP worker was a resident of Chillogram village. He wrote, “On May 3, Chillogram village resident Debabrata Maity was targeted by Trinamool Congress sponsored goons and badly injured him.

Today, he died at the SSKM (Seth Sukhlal Karnani Memorial) Hospital. I pray for his departed soul. I stand by his family in such hard times.” In a video uploaded by the BJP MLA, he was seen paying his tribute to the deceased Debabrata Maity.

Suvendu Adhikari also stated, “Shri Debabrata Maity was a Voter in my constituency #Nandigram. Was. I’m in disbelief even using the word. Is this the consequence of exercising one’s franchise? He was killed for the crime of using his Constitutional right to vote. Numbed beyond words at this senseless violence.”

“Paid my tributes to him earlier tonight. Prayed to God for the departed Soul. May it attain Eternal Peace. I stand with his Family in this hour of grief. Not just as their MLA, but also as a son of this pious soil. I am sure the great People of West Bengal stand with them, too.” ‘Suvendu Adhikari added further’.
