Fact-Check: Video of eviction drive from West Bengal circulated with misleading claims

A disturbing video from an eviction drive from West Bengal shows two distressed young girls sitting on the scattered fragments or debris of their house after authorities in Bolpur demolished it. The video has been shared with political remarks, claiming that a hawker’s only means of livelihood was destroyed just because he voted for the opposition party. However, D-Intent Data has found that there is no political angle in the entire incident. Authorities in West Bengal’s Bolpur were removing illegal encroachments.

Video circulated with misleading claims about eviction drive from West Bengal

Sharing the video propaganda account @ajaychauhan41 on X(Formerly Twitter) has said. “This video is from Bolpur, West Bengal. A helpless daughter sits on the rubble and cries as she watches her father’s shop being demolished by the state government. A hawker’s only means of livelihood was destroyed just because he voted for the opposition party”.

Another account @ranjeet1479 on X has also shared the video and made similar claims by saying. “This video is from Bolpur, West Bengal. A helpless daughter sits on the rubble and cries as she watches her father’s shop being demolished by the state government. A hawker’s only means of livelihood was destroyed just because he voted for the opposition party”.

Truth about the video: Understanding the eviction drive from West Bengal

During research D-Intent Data has found reports regarding the video. As per reports, eviction of illegal encroachments is going on across the state. Temporary shops were occupying the space of the national highway in Rampurhat. The National Highways Authority conducted an operation there on Friday with the help of the eviction police. On the other hand, eviction operations were carried out at several places in Bolpur.

Regarding the issue, Bolpur SDO Ayan Nath said. “Some permanent shops have built some permanent or temporary structures on the footpath where pedestrians are supposed to walk on this road in Bolpur. We warned them there today. Some temporary structures have been removed. The rest have been ordered to evacuate quickly.’

Hence, the illegal shops and structures were removed by the authorities, there is no political angle in the incident.

Intent
