Trinamool panchayat member ‘punishes’ another woman, assuming the victim’s political affiliation

Mita Das assumed the victim was a BJP supporter and hence punished her, say locals, while the Trinamool's panchayat member denies the charge

Post-poll violence and vandalism continue unabated in ever since Trinamool Congress (AITC) emerged as the winner in the assembly election 2021. Several parts of West Bengal reported incidents of political violence after the result of the assembly election was declared on 2 . Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged that many of its party workers have been killed in the post-poll violence. However, the AITC refutes the allegations. 

Meanwhile, a video has surfaced, showing Trinamool Congress panchayat member Mita Das forcing another woman to do a -up in full public view. Shyamal Ray, BJP’s general secretary in Bardhaman, said that the woman was punished as her brother-in-law Prashant Babu was a BJP karyakarta who worked as a booth agent for the party. Trinamool Congress’s Mita Das allegedly assumed that the woman was a part of the BJP too, and, therefore, ‘punished’ her. 

However, when confronted, Mita Das denied the allegation and claimed that locals in the area were behind the act. She said that upon receiving the information, she reached the spot and tried to rescue the woman from being attacked by Trinamool Congress men.

The place, sources said, was the market in the Canalpara area on Hatchery Road under the second panchayat of Baikanthapur of District East Bardhaman. Locals insisted the victim was punished on the order of Trinamool Congress’s Mita Das.

Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee has accused the BJP of the violence in Bengal and said that a total of 16 people had so far been killed in post-poll violence. Earlier in the day, she announced a compensation of Rs 2 lakh for the families of those who lost their lives in the post-poll violence.

Mamata, during a press meet at the secretariat, also said that her government would provide job of a home guard to one family member each of the five persons who were killed in CISF firing in Cooch Behar’s Sitalkuchi area during the fourth phase of voting on 10 April.
