The 85-year-old mother of a worker, Shova Majumdar, who had been allegedly assaulted by AITC workers in the area of the North Dumdum constituency recently, died, succumbing to the injuries, on 29 March. The death has triggered angry reactions from the leadership. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party president JP Nadda have expressed anguish over the incident. Shah said that “pain & wounds of her family” would haunt Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for long.

नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि नैनं दहति पावकः। न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः॥

“Anguished over the demise of Bengal’s daughter Shova Majumdar ji, who was brutally beaten by TMC goons. The pain & wounds of her family will haunt Mamata didi for long. Bengal will fight for a violence-free tomorrow, Bengal will fight for a safer state for our sisters & mothers,” Shah tweeted soon after news of the death of the octogenarian lady was reported.

Shova, who was in the headlines in the first week of March after brutally assaulted by alleged AITC workers, died on Monday morning. Reports said that Shova and her son, Gopal Majumdar, were assaulted in the North Dumdum area, which fell under Nimtha police station jurisdiction.

There was a nationwide outrage over the incident as the National Commission for Women took suo moto cognisance of it. The leaders had empathised with the family and circulated pictures of a bruised face on social countering Mamata Banerjee’s bid to stoke “Daughter of Bengal” sentiments.

Condoling the death of Shova, Nadda tweeted “May God comfort the soul of Nimta’s aged mother Shova Mazumdar ji. Due to her son, Gopal Majumdar, being a activist, she had to pay with her life. Her sacrifice will be remembered forever. She was also mother of Bengal, daughter of Bengal. The BJP always fights for security of mothers and daughters.”

Several other leaders including BJP MPs from West Bengal Raju Bista, Arjun Singh and Saumitra Khan condoled the death of their party colleagues mother.

Head of IT cell and a co-in-charge for West Bengal, Amit Malviya tweeted, “This daughter of Bengal, someone’s mother, someone’s sister… is dead. She was brutally assaulted by TMC cadres but Mamata Banerjee didn’t have a word of compassion for her. Who will heal the wounds of her family? TMC’s politics of violence has bruised Bengal’s soul…”
