WB youth BJP leader Mithun Ghosh shot dead in Dinajpur

BJYM VP Uttar Dinajpur dist. Mithun Ghosh was shot dead by some unidentified miscreants just in front of his home in the Rajgram village. He was the leader of Itahar in West Bengal’s North Dinajpur district.

The incident took place at 11 p.m. on Sunday when Ghosh was standing in front of his house in Rajgram village. He was shot in his stomach from a close range by two unidentified miscreants on motorbikes. Ghosh was immediately rushed to the Raiganj medical college and hospital but he was declared dead.

The BJP alleged that Trinamool Congress anti-socials were behind the murder.
Trinamool Congress, however, has denied the allegation.

Suvendu Adhikari tweeted, “BJYM VP Uttar Dinajpur Dist. Mithun Ghosh has been shot dead by assailants at Itahar. This is TMC’s handiwork written all over it. The bloodthirsty antisocial hound dogs who executed their master’s orders would be taken to task when the tide turns. We won’t forget Mithun Ghosh.”

Ghosh’s murder has triggered political debate in North Dinajpur when BJP district leadership alleged that the murder was a result of the Trinamool-sheltered goons.

BJP Uttar Dinajpur district president Basudeb Sarkar said, “Mithun Ghosh was the district secretary of the Party’s youth front. His home is in Rajgram of Itahar Assembly constituency. He was threatened on the phone at different times. We also verbally complained to the police that people from a particular political party were threatening Mithun. He was harassed in many ways but no action was taken by the administration. We are definite that the Trinamool Congress goons are behind the murder. We have confidence in the law. We will lodge an FIR and wait for the police to act.” he demanded a fair trial of the incident legally.

On the other hand, Itahar Trinamool Congress MLA Mosharraf Hossain said, “The Itahar Trinamool Congress has nothing to do with this incident. The miscreants may have fired in the dark of night. There may be a sectarian conflict between them. There may be something else. Let the police look into the matter. ‘

“The Trinamool Congress does not believe in the politics of murder. The Chief Minister has instructed us to bring peace and harmony to society and we want to follow her instructions.

“People have voted for us and it is our duty to win their confidence. We don’t need to kill people to win the confidence of the people. BJP has always believed to accuse others but they should do a soul searching and try to find out what is happening inside the party. They should not blame others,” he added.

However, West Bengal has witnessed the post-poll violence and killings of many of the BJP leaders.
