Bengal MPs, Ministers meet Rajasthan victim’s family

 

A delegation of senior Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders, including three Lok Sabha MPs and two Ministers in the West Bengal government, visited the house of the labourer from West Bengal’s Malda district who was brutally killed in Rajasthan two days ago.

 

The delegation comprised MPs Sougata Roy, Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Kakuli Ghosh Dastidar, along with State Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim and Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari. The TMC delegation also held a rally in Malda condemning the murder.

“Our government will stand beside the family in every possible way. Such brutality and violence is unprecedented anywhere in the country. I strongly condemn such acts of terror,” Mr. Hakim said after meeting Mohammad Afrazul’s family members in Kaliachak.

 

The Minister also blamed the Bharatiya Janata Partry (BJP) for the violence, saying the party “promoted intolerance” in the country. State BJP president Dilip Ghosh accused the ruling party of “playing the communal card”.

Leaders from other political parties, among them State Congress President Adhir Chowdhury and Congress Rajya Sabha MP Pradeep Bhattacharya, also met the grieving family.
