Political career[edit]

He is a member of All India Trinamool Congress. He was an MLA from Alipore for two terms (2001-2006 & 2006-2009). Currently, he is the MP of Krishnanagar since 2009.


On 30 June 2014, a video emerged of a speech "apparently six to seven weeks old", by Tapas Pal in [5] In the video, Tapas Pal is reported to have threatened workers of the rival party with violence[5][6][7]

Another report said that his remarks were made during a workers' meeting in Chowmaha village on June 14, and he said:[8][9]

if any one Virodhi(opponent) touches any one Trinomool girl, any father, any child, I will raid/destroy his gushti (entire extended family). I will send my boys, they will rape and go. .... If any CPM(Communist Party of India - Marxist) worker dares to touch my Trinamool (people), I will destroy his gushti. I will have the final say on this matter: Till today they(opponent) have beaten little kids, mothers, sisters. This village's all people, those who are virodhis(opponents), I am cautioning them, be very cautions. I will live up there, and I will come every month to this village. If I hear even one bad incident, and get witness; I will not leave the culprit alone. Therefore, I am telling the virodhis, "live carefully". I am a Trinamool congress worker, not an MP, a worker. If there is any CPM worker out there in the audience, I am showing them my shoe. I am telling them, what they have done that day... when the commando force came, they(opponents/culprits) ran through this way, every one of them ran away. ... I will not say anything more, because my head is very hot(I am very angry). I am saying, everyone be careful. From today onwards, if any CPM(Communist Party of India - Marxist) touches anyone from my Trinoomul, I will end their gushti (entire extended family). (their) house, home, gushti, I will end. This I am saying clearly.

In another incident, in a second video from the village called Tehatta on the same day, Tapas Paul was seen purportedly provoking his supporters to slit the throat of opposition members.[10][11]

Humans who murder Humans cannot be Humans. Their mothers must have slept with dogs,... that's why they have murdered so many. I am saying one thing: Do not spare CPM workers... I am saying this again and again. I will finish them off. Know Boti ? Boti is for cutting necks... ...this old man and old lady, suffering so much my heart is breaking. My brothers, sisters, and friends, I am asking kindly, do not spare them(CPM), please. ...if you can kill, kill. Kill the CPM. The man who came here today, his granddaughter

In a third video from the village named Teghoria on the same day, Tapas Paul provoked his supporters to rampage the house of a CPI-M worker named Rafiqul.
