Nandigram had shown the path of change in West Bengal few years back, and now Purulia will show the new path of change in the state, claimed senior BJP leader Mukul Roy at Purulia on Tuesday.

“Our party’s national president Amit Shah is coming to Purulia on 28 June but before his visit the state government is trying to mislead the probe process of our supporter. We want a CBI probe and have no faith in the CID,” said Mr Roy.

The senior leader has come to Purulia on Tuesday to inspect the progress of the venue and podium of Mr Shah’s visit and rally at Purulia. Earlier in the day, Mr Roy visited the houses of the three deceased BJP supporters ~ Trilochan Mahato, Dulal Kumar, Jagannnath Tudu~ and invited the family members to be present on the podium during Shah’s rally in the town.

Talking to The Statesman, Mr Roy said the victim’s father lodged an FIR in which he named six persons, but police did not bothered to even pick them up for questioning. “ The arrest was made at a time when his father moved High Court seeking CBI probe. We have no faith in the CID investigations into the Trilochan Mahato murder case,” Mr Roy added.

He further added that the arrested Punjabi Mahato has no connections with the BJP. The main job of the CID has been to collect secret information about the BJP and its leaders and then pass it on to the rulling party, he alleged. False cases, even that of narcotic cases, have been registered against BJP workers and leaders in Purulia, he claimed.

Veteran BJP leader Kailash Vijaybargiya was also supposed to visit the houses of the three deceased BJP supporters in Balarampur on Tuesday along with Mr Roy but he could not come due to his mother’s sudden illness, the BJP leadership said.

It should be recalled that the Purulia District Police did not give permission to BJP national president Amit Shah to visit the houses of the three supporters at Balarampur and even rejected to give permission of a rally there. Instead the police allowed Mr Shah to hold an open meeting in Purulia on 28 June.

BJP state leadership are trying to get the families of all the three families on stage on that day in a desperate attempt as the state politics has suddenly became volatile in Purulia after the defeat of TMC in several parts of the district to BJP in the recently concluded three tier gram panchayat polls.
