TMC 'Sanitises' BJP Workers Who Are Making A Comeback To Mamata Banerjee's Party

INDIA Team Latestly|

Shaving their heads. Being doused in sanitiser. A literal walk of shame for BJP workers in West Bengal who are trying to switch back to their old party Trinamool Congress following the state election results in May. The ride back was smoother for the likes of Mukul Roy, a top Trinamool lieutenant who switched to the BJP before the 2019 general elections. But it's an entirely different experience for many of the party's foot soldiers. Recently, six BJP workers shaved off their hair when they swapped party flags in Hooghly, reported NDTV. The move drew condemnation from BJP Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta, who managed to secure a seat back in the upper house of parliament after an unsuccessful run in the state elections. The public humiliation was reminiscent of 1960's China, Swapan Dasgupta said. On June 24, in the Birhum district, 150 BJP workers were thoroughly sprayed with sanitiser before being handed the Trinamool flag. The local party leader who organised the switchover event said he "wanted to sanitise the BJP bug out of these people.” Watch the video to know more.
