New Delhi: The BJP has invited the families of workers killed recently in West Bengal in the run-up to ― and during ― the Lok Sabha election, 2019, to the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi and his council of ministers to be held in the capital on 30 May at 7 PM.

The gesture to these families, seen as a healing touch by none lesser than Modi, assumes significance at a time when the BJP is expanding its footprint in Bengal. The party won 18 seats in the Lok Sabha election of 2019, which is greater than the 16 Rajiv Gandhi’s Congress had won after the assassination of Indira Gandhi in 1984 in the otherwise impregnable State, which was then a bastion of the CPI(M)-led Left Front.

Elaborate arrangements for the swearing-in ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan are afoot. All newly elected Members of Parliament, chief ministers and their deputies in all the States and presidents of all political parties have been invited according to the protocol. Further, tall political figures, eminent citizens and the supporters of the BJP overseas like OF-BJP (Overseas Friends of BJP) have been invited to the ceremony as well. Also invited are industrialists, film actors and sportspersons.

The kin of killed BJP karyakartas who were killed recently in incidents of political violence in Bengal who have been invited to attend the ceremony, numbering 54. They have been extended specially worded letters of invitation.

The party has made elaborate arrangements for the lodging and boarding of the bereaved families in Delhi.

The families included in the list are of late BJP workers who were killed in the period 16 June 2013 to 26 May 2019. The first date happens to be of the day when the party’s Dalit activist Nripen Mandal was killed allegedly by goons affiliated to the Trinamool.

Two BJP workers Santu Ghosh and Chandan Shaw were killed after the announcement of results of the Lok Sabha election, 2019. Shaw was killed yesterday and Ghosh the day before. Their families have been invited to the swearing-in ceremony, too.
