Complaint filed against newly appointed BJP National Secretary Anupam Hazra.


The Trinamool Congress Party’s Siliguri Unit has registered a complaint against Anupam Hazra a former TMC MP who joined the BJP last year and has been recently appointed as BJP National Secretary.

Hazra commented as “Our workers are fighting a bigger enemy than corona. They are fighting Mamata Banerjee. When the BJP cadres have been able to fight it out against Mamata Banerjee without a mask, they think they can also fight against Covid-19 without wearing a mask,” he further added as “I have decided that if I get infected with the corona, then I will go and hug Mamata Banerjee.”

As a reply to this the Senior TMC leader Saugato Roy has condemned the remarks and said “it only reflected the mindset of the saffron party”. He further said “Such words and statements can only come from BJP leaders. This reflects the mindset of the party. We condemn such insane statements.”

The Congress Unit of Siliguri has also set a rally against the BJP leader at which the Senior TMC leader Saugato Roy said “We have lodged a police complaint against Anupam Hazra. We have urged the police to take immediate action against him.”
