WB child-trafficking racket accused names Vijayvargiya, Roopa

Kolkatta: According to The Hindu reports , in a major embarrassment to the Bharatiya Janata Party, the names of its central and West Bengal leaders — national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and women’s wing president Roopa Ganguly — has been mentioned by a key accused in a recent child trafficking case in North Bengal.

The accused, Chandana Chakraborty, who ran a child care home in north Bengal, alleged on Tuesday that Juhi Chowdhury, a general secretary of State BJP’s women’s wing, perhaps spoke to Vijayvargiya and Ganguly to “resolve some issues” about the child care home.

The BJP leadership, however, denied the allegation.

“I have not spoken to anyone (Central BJP leaders). Juhi spoke to them and perhaps to Roopa Ganguly and Kailash Vijayvargiya. I was sitting in another room when she spoke to them,” Chakraborty told media persons in Siliguri before being produced at a local court. She also said that she approached Chowdhury for “some help” and she assured her of “resolving all the problems” about running the child care home.
