"Made To Sign Blank Paper": Sandeshkhali Woman Alleges Fake Rape Complaint

Title: Allegations of Fabricated Rape Complaints Stir Controversy in Sandeshkhali, Fueling Political Turmoil In a startling revelation, a woman from Sandeshkhali has accused individuals associated with the BJP of coercing her into signing a blank document, which was later allegedly filled with a fabricated rape complaint against local Trinamool leaders.

This development has reignited the already intense political feud between the ruling Trinamool Congress and the BJP, escalating tensions amidst the ongoing election season. The woman, speaking to the media, disclosed that during a visit by the National Commission for Women to the island, a woman named Piyali had prompted them to voice their grievances. However, the woman clarified that her sole concern was the non-receipt of funds under the 100 days' job scheme and vehemently denied any occurrence of rape. She asserted that Piyali coerced her and others into signing a blank sheet, later discovering that their names were included in the list of women alleging rape by Trinamool leaders. Adding to the complexity of the situation, the woman's daughters-in-law accused Piyali of defaming Sandeshkhali, labeling her as an outsider affiliated with the BJP. They expressed bewilderment over Piyali's access to information about the locals and alleged that she manipulated them into false accusations. Furthermore, they revealed facing threats subsequent to their disclosure against Piyali. In response to these allegations, the Trinamool Congress, previously besieged by accusations against its local leaders, seized upon the woman's claims to denounce the BJP's purported attempts to tarnish their image for political mileage.

Trinamool MP Sushmita Dev condemned the BJP's intimidation of the women of Sandeshkhali, questioning the ethics of using deceit to further political agendas. The BJP swiftly rebutted the allegations, dismissing them as a belated attempt by the Trinamool to salvage its reputation. Party spokesperson Priyanka Tibrewal criticized the timing of Trinamool's response and questioned their silence over the preceding months. She insinuated that the allegations against Trinamool leaders cannot be dismissed outright and hinted at underlying truths behind the accusations. Amidst the escalating feud, the Trinamool Congress lodged a formal complaint with the Election Commission against several BJP leaders, including Suvendu Adhikari, for allegedly fabricating claims in the Sandeshkhali controversy. The Sandeshkhali saga, which gained prominence following allegations of harassment by local strongman Sheikh Shahjahan and subsequent arrests, took a surprising turn with the emergence of a video implicating a local BJP leader. In the video, Gangadhar Koyal purportedly admitted to orchestrating false rape complaints under the direction of Suvendu Adhikari, prompting fervent denials and claims of manipulation from the BJP camp. As the controversy deepens, the veracity of the allegations remains contentious, underscoring the volatile intersection of politics and social justice in Sandeshkhali. With accusations flying from both sides, the residents of the nondescript island find themselves embroiled in a storm of conflicting narratives, grappling with the repercussions of a tangled web of deceit and political maneuvering.
