TMC stands for ‘Taliban Congress Party': BJP
After a BJP worker was found hanging from an electric pole in Balarampur in West Bengal's Purulia district, the saffron party on Saturday termed the TMC, which stands for the Trinamool Congress, as the 'Taliban Congress Party'.
Two days after 20-year-old Trilochan Mahato was found hanging from a tree in Purulia's Balarampur development block, another BJP activist was hanged from a high-tension electrical transmission tower in Dabha village in the same area on Friday night. The body of 30-year-old Dulal Kumar was discovered by villagers this morning (June 2).
"This isn't Trinamool Congress Party but Taliban Congress Party. TMC is propagating terrorism. If TMC wants to fight, they must do so ideologically. The manner in which our worker was hanged, Mamata Banerjee does not have the right to stay in power anymore," BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain told news agency ANI.
"We will not sit quietly, especially after the manner in which BJP people are being targeted. Bengal police work like a cadre of the TMC, there is no difference between the two of them," he added.
BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha earlier said that this was the "second killing of a BJP supporter in past three days." He demanded a probe by a Central Bureau of Investigation into the death of Kumar and Trilochan Mahato.
Meanwhile, BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya wrote to NHRC over the incident of murder of a BJP worker in Purulia. He writes, "We do not trust state government, police, and the CID. We want NHRC do conduct a thorough investigation in the incident."
The BJP leadership has also been levelling allegation that there was a nexus between ruling TMC and the state police.
