Fist fight and a complete ruckus in West Bengal Assembly over Birbhum Violence Case

West Bengal Assembly

The number of people who died in the Birbhum Violence Case increased further as one more victim succumb to death, taking the toll to 9 and the matter has now reached the West Bengal Assembly.

The Birbhum Violence case has now reached the West Bengal Assembly with the ruling TMC and the opposition-BJP indulging in physical fights. The incident led to the suspension of 5 BJP MLAs, including the LoP (Leader of Opposition) Suvendu Adhikari and BJP chief whip Manoj Tigga. A few MLAs from both sides were injured in the incident including Asit Mazumder of the ruling Trinamool who was severely injured and was admitted to a hospital with a broken nose. The incident comes on a day when the number of people who died in the Birbhum Violence Case increased further as one more victim, identified as Najma Bibi, succumb to death, taking the toll to 9.

The incident occurred on the very last day of the Budget Session in which several BJP MLAs were seen climbing to the well of the House and demanded Mamata Banerjee to tender her resignation over her ineffectiveness of stopping the violence in Birbhum’s Bogtui Village.  There have been numerous videos of the incident doing the rounds on social media. Sharing a video of the incident, Dr. Sukanata Majumdar of the Bharatiya Janata Party wrote, “Murder of democracy in West Bengal under @MamataOfficial. Temple of democracy shamed by the TMC MLAs. Shame!” Terming the incident unfortunate, Biman Banerjee, the speaker of the West Bengal Assembly said, “This is an unwanted, unprecedented incident.” 

The Violence in Birbhum’s Bogtui Village claimed the lives of about 9 people who were charred to death after a local leader associated with the ruling Trinamool Congress was murdered. As of now, The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is investigating the matter.

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC patriarch Mamata Banerjee stated that she welcomes the decision to transfer the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) but also warned the central agency that they must not act at the behest of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). She said “We hope the CBI will do its job. However, if it starts acting at the behest of the BJP, we will hit the streets.”
