BJP files lawsuit against 50 individuals following attack on Geeta Koda in Jharkhand

JNS: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has filed a lawsuit against around 50 people, eight of whom are named, after an attack on BJP candidate Geeta Koda in Mohanpur village, Seraikela, Jharkhand. The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon during an election campaign by Geeta Koda.

The villagers protested, leading to a ruckus for almost two and a half hours. Women District President Rashmi Sahu, Sunita Mishra, and other campaign participants were assaulted, while BJP leaders Ganesh Mahali and Amit Singhdev were also attacked. Police from four stations, including the SDPO, arrived, pacified the villagers, and rescued everyone.

The incident prompted a FIR to be filed at Gamhariya police station against around 50 individuals, including eight named, based on a statement by Rashmi Sahu. Geeta Koda, the Singhbhum MP and BJP candidate, described the incident as regrettable and an attack on democracy.

She and her team were held captive for two hours. Her husband, Madhu Koda, blamed the ruling party for the incident.

Dr. Dineshanand Goswami, former state president of the BJP, accused the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) of orchestrating the attack due to fear of defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.

He stated that preventing Geeta Koda from campaigning was disgraceful and that the BJP will approach the Election Commission regarding the matter.
