Congress jumps into the support of Rhea Chakraborty, calls her ‘Bengali Brahmin girl’

The Sushant Singh Rajput mysterious death case seems to be turning into a regionalist fight. The West Bengal unit of the Congress party has now come up in support of fellow “Bengali,” Rhea Chakraborty. Recently, the Congress in West Bengal took out a protest march against alleged harassment of Rhea Chakraborty by media and agencies.

Last week, referring to Rhea as a “Bengali brahmin,” West Bengal Congress President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had said that she is daughter of a retired army officer who served the nation.

He had further accused BJP of playing regionalist politics by portraying Sushant Singh Rajput as just a Bihari when in fact he was an Indian.

A tweet by the official Twitter handle of West Bengal Congress on Saturday read, “Political conspiracy and vindictive behaviour against Rhea Chakraborty, the daughter of Bengal, will not be tolerated. The protest rally was taken out from provincial Congress office to Wellington junction on the instructions of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, president of the West Bengal Congress.”

Rhea Chakraborty’s family reportedly has roots in Purulia district in West Bengal with an ancestral home at Bagmundi.
