Balurghat (July 11,2023) : Siuli Mardi, the woman who was forced to crawl on the ground by a group of men in Balurghat, West Bengal, has won the panchayat polls from Gofanagar. Mardi was a Trinamool Congress candidate, and she won the election by a margin of over 2,000 votes. Her victory is seen as a sign of the public's anger at the incident, and it is a major boost for the TMC.

The incident occurred on March 27, when Mardi was campaigning for the panchayat polls. A group of men stopped her and forced her to crawl on the ground. The men also made casteist slurs against her.

The incident was widely condemned, and it led to calls for the arrest of the men involved. The police have arrested five men in connection with the incident. Mardi's victory is a significant moment for women's rights in West Bengal. It shows that women can overcome even the most difficult challenges and win elections. It is also a sign of the public's growing intolerance for violence against women.
