Political war in the region
According to sources a lot of rumors are circulating in the region in this scenario. Some say the girl was a BJP supporter, or some say her father was a BJP supporter. That’s why she has to face such a brutal situation. However, social media is raising its voice to get her justice and compensation. The family is still in shock and grief. They are looking toward the ruling party to get some hope and warmth. Other rumors are the girl was Christian or Muslim that’s why the attack happened.
TMC the ruling party is denying the fact that their goon did this horrendous act. They are saying that they won’t do such acts just because the people are not supporting them. However, people are convinced that this whole act was because of political differences. Mamta Bannerjee, chairman of TMC is looking into this case herself. Post or Pre elections, these types of incidents are really common in India. This destroys the peaceful face of the country worldwide. If TMC cannot solve this murder case vigilantly, the next elections would be tough for them. BJP gets the sympathy votes, moreover, more seats than TMC in their hometown. Social media is raising its voice and is keen to provide this poor soul a fair share of justice.
