On Sunday, Anupam Hazra, a former Trinamool MP from Bengal’s Bolpur, who joined the BJP in January 2019, was quoted as saying, “If someday I am found COVID positive, I will go to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and hug her. She will understand the pain of those who have suffered the disease, and have lost their near and dear ones during the pandemic.”

This remark was made by Mr. Hazra a day after he was appointed secretary by the BJP on Saturday; replacing Rahul Sinha who expressed anger at a loyal party worker; having to make to “accommodate” a Trinamool turncoat.

A complaint was filed by Trinamool Congress’s Refugee Cell for derogatory remarks against a woman and head of the state. It sought action against Mr. Hazra for maligning a public figure, who is a woman; in violation of the Constitution and hurting the sentiments of the complainants. The police complaint was filed at the Siliguri police station in Darjeeling district.

BJP’s leader in Bengal had distanced themselves from Mr. Hazra’s comment. BJP’s newly appointed Vice President Mukul Roy said that “Those in positions of responsibilities must be careful about what they speak.”

West Bengal has more than 2.6 lakh coronavirus cases with 5,017 deaths.
