New Delhi: Earlier on the day, A young BJP worker was found hanging from a tree in West Bengal’s Purulia, in what the party alleged was a political murder linked to the violent civic polls in the state earlier this month. 20-year-old Trilochan Mahato was hanging by his own trousers.
BJP president Amit Shah, in tweets, said he was “deeply hurt by the brutal killing of our young karyakarta.” In the post that also included an image of Trilochan’s body, Mr Shah tweeted:
“The present TMC govt in West Bengal has surpassed the violent legacy of Communist rule. Entire BJP mourns this tragic loss & stands firmly with Trilochan Mahato’s family in this hour of grief. His sacrifice for organisation & ideology will not go in vain. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.
Deeply hurt by the brutal killing of our young karyakarta, Trilochan Mahato in Balarampur,West Bengal. A young life full of possibilities was brutally taken out under state’s patronage. He was hanged on a tree just because his ideology differed from that of state sponsored goons.”
