Bengal BJP leaders call on Governor on post-poll violence
Jagdeep Dhankhar said he will look into the allegations.
A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Bengal delegation today called on West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at Raj Bhawan to submit a memorandum on post-poll violence. Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari, BJP Bengal chief Sukanta Majumdar, MP Saumitra Khan, senior leader Agnimitra Paul along with family members of post-poll violence victims were part of the delegation.
Dhankhar said that he had heard about the incidents from the families of the victims and had “taken note” of what they told him.
Meanwhile, senior minister in the West Bengal cabinet, Trinamool Congress’ Chandrima Bhattacharya said that the BJP delegation meeting the Governor is “nothing unusual”. She said: “Raj Bhawan is like a drawing room for them.”
Meanwhile, Bhattacharya, referring to the post-mortem report of the deceased BJP worker Arjun Chowrasia, said: “It is not true that he was killed and the body made to hang. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, has not projected himself as a responsible person. He should apologise.” Shah had visited the home of Chowrasia in Kolkata and demanded a probe into the death by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
