"Mamata ji, what your party did after winning, speaks about your belief in democracy. TMC workers & leaders are saying that all these incidents on social media are fake. You've seen how Haran Adhikari's wife & son were crying. I request media to tell truth to the nation," said JP Nadda.
"After the results, TMC goons went to the house of Haran Adhikari (BJP worker), vandalised it, threatened women & children, attacked them, & broke his wife's teeth. They then dragged Adhikari out of his house & beat him up. He died," added Nadda describing the gruesome murder of the BJP worker allegedly carried out by TMC goons.
