New Delhi, News24 Bureau, June 11: Just after a day the blame game has once again begun in West Bengal with BJP and Trinamool Congress vying for each other's blood.
What started during the Lok Sabha Polls is continuing, though sporadically. The violent phase that kick-started at that time ceases to go away and the blame game is on.
Even West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has minced no words in telling how much she hates BJP. And in return, even BJP workers have left no stone unturned to irritate her. Just a couple of days ago her cavalcade was stopped twice as the chants of Jai Shri Ram followed her and an irritated chief minister came out of her car and shouted back at the BJP workers.
The Bharatiya Janata Party claimed on Monday that a supporter of the party was strangled to death allegedly for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' by workers of the Trinamool Congress in the state's Howrah district.
Though police confirmed the death of 43-year-old Samatul Doloi, whose body was found in a field at Sarpota village under Amta Police Station limits, officers were tight-lipped about the cause of the death.
He had gone to attend a function on Sunday night but did not return home. His body with a noose around the neck was found on Monday morning, locals sources said.BJP's Howrah rural president Anupam Mullick claimed that Doloi was a party supporter and was killed by Trinamool Congress workers for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'.
Denying the charge, Trinamool Congress MLA Samir Panja said the truth will come out in an impartial probe.
Mamata Banerjee had lost her cool twice last month over people chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' at her motorcade.
On Saturday, at least three men were killed in North 24 Parganas district in clashes between workers of the Trinamool Congress and the BJP.
