Jalpaiguri (August 11,2023) : In a dramatic turn of events, Purnima Roy, the BJP candidate who was abducted and forced to withdraw her nomination for the panchayat elections in North Bengal, has been selected as the panchayat head by the Trinamool Congress (TMC). Roy was abducted by TMC supporters on the day of the nomination filing, and she was released only after she agreed to withdraw her nomination. The TMC has now selected Roy as the panchayat head for the ward, and she is expected to take charge soon.

The selection of Roy as the panchayat head has sparked outrage among BJP leaders, who have accused the TMC of using intimidation and coercion to win the elections. They have also demanded that the Election Commission take action against the TMC.

The TMC has denied the allegations, and has said that Roy was selected as the panchayat head because she is a popular leader in the area. They have also said that the BJP is trying to create a controversy because they are losing the elections. The selection of Roy as the panchayat head is a major setback for the BJP in North Bengal. It also raises questions about the TMC's commitment to fair elections.
