The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleged that the mother of one of its party workers was killed by Trinamool Congress (TMC) "goons" at the poll-bound Goghat constituency in Hooghly district, hours before the third phase of polling for the West Bengal Assembly Election 2021 was set to begin on Tuesday.
The BJP alleges its party worker Piru Adak was attacked on Monday night by a group of Trinamool workers at the Khushiganj area in Goghat’s Badanganj.
When Adak’s mother Madhavi rushed in to defend her son, the TMC workers beat her to death, the party claims.
Former governor of Tripura and BJP leader Tathagata Roy also took to Twitter to raise the same allegation. "In Goghat in Hooghly district of West Bengal, Piru Adak, a BJP worker was attacked by Trinamool goons. When his mother Madhavi tried to save him the goons attacked and killed her," tweeted Roy.
