The five-member fact-finding committee of the women MPs of BJP, which was constituted by BJP National President Shri JP Nadda to inquire about the violence and atrocities against women in the recently-concluded Panchayat Polls in West Bengal submitted its report to Shri JP Nadda on 20 July, 2023.

In a twitter message Shri Nadda said, “Received the report by the BJP Fact-Finding Team, constituted to inquire about the violence and atrocities inflicted upon women during the Panchayat Election in West Bengal”.

Shri JP Nadda posted the message along with an image wherein convener of the panel, Ms. Saroj Pandey along with the members can be seen handing over the report to him.

Slamming the Mamata Banerjee-led state government, the BJP National President said, “This report exposes the utter state of lawlessness in West Bengal and the state government’s insensitivity towards political adversaries.” The BJP will never tolerate this oppression of the people, Shri Nadda added.

Noteworthy, the Bharatiya Janata Party on 17 July, 2023 constituted a five-member committee of the party’s women MPs to visit violence-affected areas in West Bengal and submit a report on atrocities committed against women in the state during the violence that ensued during the Panchayat Election period. The parliamentarians in the committee include Convenor Ms. Saroj Pandey, Smt. Rama Devi, Smt. Aparajita Sarangi, Ms. Kavita Patidar, and Smt. Sandhya Ray. The committee submitted its report after visiting the areas affected by the violence during Panchayat elections.
