BJP youth wing worker ‘struggles’ with lawyer, quits party red-faced

In BJP’s embarrassment, a worker from the party’s youth wing got into a fight with a lawyer outside the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) where former Union Minister Prakash Javadekar was giving a lecture on ‘[email protected]’, a book on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s model of governance.

A party employee of Yuva Morcha, Abhijit Naha, reportedly had a run-in with lawyer Sabyasachi Roy Chowdhury, claiming he ‘burst’ into the seminary and alleged that he was taking money from people on behalf of of various leaders and officers of the IPS.

Roy Chowdhury, on the other hand, denied his claims, saying he came to the ICCR at the invitation of top BJP leader Samik Bhattacharya.

Before the case could be resolved, the two men got into a fight. An on-site security guard intervened and prevented the matter from escalating. The incident happened while Javadekar was giving a lecture. “This is Sabyasachi Roy Chowdhury. He came here uninvited. He works as a TMC agent. He takes money from people on behalf of IPS leaders and officers. He is an impostor. He should go said the Yuva Morcha worker.

Roy Chowdhury said: “All these allegations are baseless and I came here at the invitation of Samik Bhattacharya. It’s very unfortunate. I was harassed beyond measure. They should ask Samik Bhattacharya why he called me here.

Asked about the fight, Bhattacharya said he called Roy Chowdhury to sign official documents. “I don’t know what happened outside. I called him here to sign legal documents. Abhijit Naha introduced me to Roy Chowdhury before the KMC polls last year. I won’t say anything beyond that time,” Bhattacharya said.

The incident, however, left the BJP state leadership red-faced as it happened at a time when Javadekar was speaking at the scene.

“Modiji changed the course of the country and led it on the path of development. He realized the dreams and aspirations of the people of this huge country through his wise leadership. He ensured good governance that reached every corner of the country,” Javadekar said during the event.
