In July 2020 of 16 year old girl was abducted, rape and murder by feroz Ali in chopragaj. The minor girl was targeted only because she was the sister of a BJP President. None of the opposition leaders like Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka condemned search acts in West Bengal. Maybe it is their impotency that do not allowed them to interfere in the Bengal issues. They can only perform the Circus shows in the U.P. for the rape case that too which never happened. Where are the so called concerned leaders when Bengal is burning with violence and having a blood shed? Derek O brein, the Tmc leader had also visited UP to create fake narrative in the Hathras case, but he is silent on the murder of democracy in his own state. While the whole oppn in busy in creating Fake narratives the death of democracy & the rule of autocracy continues in West Bengal.
