Hamidul Haque, Monirul Haque, Samiul Mia and Amjad Hossain were shot dead by the police on the bike of booth No. 1 of Jitalpatki in Sitalkuchi assembly constituency on Saturday, the day of the fourth phase of polling. Ananda Barman, a young voter, was shot dead in the midst of a political clash shortly after leaving the booth for the first time in the Pathantuli area that morning. However, the grief over the deaths of 4 innocent people and the protests over it, the death of Anand Barman was a bit of a pressure in politics. And after 24 hours, the Union Home Minister used this issue as a tool. According to him, just as vocal as the grassroots leader is about the deaths of four minority youths, so is the indifference of Ananda Varman, the death of a dynastic youth. But the same grief in Anand’s family. They also need to be by their side. In this context, Shah further demanded that Mamata Banerjee should apologize for the incident of Shitalkuchi. Because, he was the one who incited the people to surround the central forces, the manifestation of which was the incident of Shitalkuchi’s coup d’etat.
