Senior BJP MLA from Hemtabad in West Bengal Debendra Nath Roy was found hanging near his house in north Bengals Uttar Dinajpur district on Monday morning. Fellow BJP leaders and his family members have alleged that he was murdered and have demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe into the leaders unnatural death. His body was found in the balcony of a shop near his house at Bondol in Hemtabad.
A police official from Uttar Dinajpur district said, The body has been sent for autopsy. We are investigating the case. No one has been detained for questioning or arrested so far.
Roy was murdered. The way his body was found suggests that it was a planned murder and the accused tried to pass it off as a suicide. The ruling TMC (Trinamool Congress) is involved in his murder, alleged Rahul Sinha, National Secretary of BJP.
The TMC, however, quashed BJP’s allegations. Kanhaiyalal Agarwal, a TMC leader from Uttar Dinajpur district said, he heard the MLA committed suicide and the cops are investigating the case. Agarwal further said that let the truth come out; if he has been murdered, then the culprits should be identified and punished as per law.
After questioning BJP leaders, they informed that some people had called Roy around 1 am on Monday and he went out of his home. His body was later found hanging. Roy had won the Bengal Assembly Elections from Hemtabad on a Communist Party of India (Marxist) ticket in 2016, but joined the BJP last year.
BJP National Chief JP Nadda in a tweet wrote, The suspected heinous killing of Debendra Nath Ray, BJP MLA from Hemtabad in West Bengal, is extremely shocking and deplorable. This speaks of the Gunda Raj and failure of law and order in the Mamta govt. People will not forgive such a govt in the future. We strongly condemn this.
When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

‘Even Modiji can’t finish my political career:’ Pankaja Munde
BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.
Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
