Tribeni (West Bengal): A BJP has been arrested in Tribeni in the Hooghly district of West Bengal for allegedly posting insulting comments against CM Mamata Banerjee. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) had lodged a complaint against the accused at the Magra police station.

The accused BJP employee, who has been identified as Sourav Bhattacharya, was arrested on Sunday morning and brought before a local court in Chunchura. A case has been registered against the accused under sections 505 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The court sent the accused into custody until October 28.

This is the second crackdown on online dissent by West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) in recent months. YouTuber Roddur Roy was arrested a few months ago for his remarks against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The BJP criticized Mamata Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) for Sourav’s arrest. Launching a strong attack on the ruling party, BJP Hooghly Organizational District General Secretary Suresh Sau said, “There is no rule of law in the state. Skilled people don’t get jobs. Unqualified people steal jobs that should have gone to the deserving. Police brutalize a peaceful protest in the dark of night. Nothing can be said. BJP protests against corruption. We will continue to do so. The police will file a false file in this case. But we will not back down. »

While giving a counter reaction to the BJP, Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Arindam Ganguly said, “The comments made by this BJP worker against Mamata Banerjee can never be accepted. What else do people expect from the BJP? What is the true culture of the BJP is clear from their words. Such comments are strongly condemned.

Incidentally, West Bengal politics are frantic over the crackdown on teacher candidates who had gone on a hunger strike outside the state education department headquarters in Karunamayi, in the region of Salt Lake in Kolkata. The police had evacuated them from the site of the demonstration in a violent and brutal manner on Thursday evening.

The incident sparked anger across West Bengal with the BJP and people from other sections of society speaking out against Mamata Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress (TMC).
