A picture of a Panchayat Samiti member massaging the feet of a Trinamool MLA is going viral on social media. At the same time, discussions have also intensified in the political corridor regarding this picture.
In the picture, MLA Asit Majumdar is seen lying on the bed and Ruma Rai Pal, former head of Gram Panchayat and current member of Panchayat Samiti, is massaging his leg. Rumadevi herself posted that picture. She wrote in her post, "my master, my God, I am blessed to serve him".
According to sources, the MLA from Churchura had gone to Devanandpur in Hooghly under the "Didi'r Suraksha Kavach" program. He stayed for some time in the house of a resident of that area, where Rumadevi massaged his foot.
As soon as the picture came to the fore, the BJP strongly criticized Asit Mazumdar. Taking a jibe, the BJP said that the MLA's policy is very clear. Give and take. You have to give something to get something. Similarly, he has made many people his slaves.
Rumadevi, however, claims that there is nothing in the picture that has led to controversy. She said that Asit had undergone leg surgery a month ago. His legs were stiff after the day's program. He loves me very much. That's why I served him.
