Dhiman Roy, Katwa: He has been walking barefoot for 17 years. In the Assembly Election 2021 in Bengal, the party will not wear shoes until it comes to power in the state. Such a promise was made by a BJP activist named Nilmoni Dana, a resident of Nirol village in Ketugram.
The 47-year-old sapphire roams barefoot all year round in winter, summer and monsoon. Nilmonibabu also came to Uddharapur in Ketugram on Friday to attend the party’s booth-based workers’ conference. And even today he was seen barefoot. When asked about not wearing these shoes, Nilmonibabu said, “BJP is going to come to power in the state after the assembly elections. I want to start wearing shoes again with the gift of new shoes from our party chief minister. ”

He is survived by his wife, a daughter and a son. In addition to the people’s wages, the family of Nilmani Babu lives by selling incense sticks. Daughter Sumna (18) is studying in class XI in Nirol High School. Sushovan (10) is a sixth class student of the same school. Rakhidevi, the wife of Nilmonibabu, worked as a kantha stitch to save her family from hardships.
Of course, she doesn’t know much about her husband’s bet. In the words of Rakhidevi, “You can see before the birth of the girl that she does not use shoes. Because when asked, he did not say anything. I used to feel bad. Now the body is asleep. ” BJP’s Burdwan East (rural) district committee president Krishna Ghosh said, “Nilmonibabu is our dedicated worker. I also asked her to put on her shoes. But he turned down my request. I want his resolve to be fulfilled after May 2. ”
