New Delhi [India], March 23: Following the violence in Birbhum in which eight people were killed, BJP National Vice President Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday termed the incident 'inhumane' and said the BJP would take up the matter in the Lok Sabha.
Speaking to ANI, Dilip Ghosh said, "At least eight people, including children, were burnt alive in Birbhum district. This is an inhumane incident and such incidence do not happen in a decent society."
"We told this incident to Amit Shah and party president. The Union Home Ministry will take stock of the situation. We are also going to take up this issue in the Lok Sabha so that the people get to know about the incident," added the former Bengal BJP chief.
He further added, "We are ashamed that such an incident took place in West Bengal. Innocent people, children were burnt alive, people are leaving the village. More than 200 BJP workers have been killed so far in the state. What is the government doing? This can't be tolerated."
He also added, "The TMC is not allowing opposition parties to file nomination papers in the Panchayat elections or urban civic body polls. Such incident happened in 2018 and again this year."
