West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh on Monday issued a controversial statement, warning supporters of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Ghosh said her supporters should mend their ways or risk having arms and legs broken, or even killed.While addressing a rally at Haldia, Ghosh said Didi’s brothers who are creating trouble should change their habits in the next six months otherwise they will have your arms, legs, ribs and head broken. They’ll have to take a trip to the hospital. And if they do more than that, then they will have to go to the crematorium.
The BJP and TMC are at loggerheads in West Bengal which will go to assembly polls next year. Both parties have accused each other of political violence, attacks on each other’s supporters, and unrest in the state.
Ghosh also said the party will withdraw false cases against political leaders of not only BJP, but CPI(M), Congress, and even TMC across the state if the BJP comes to power in West Bengal after the next year’s Assembly election. He even lured the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers to join BJP, saying that they would be continued to be mistreated like this if they don’t leave the TMC. The state elections will be conducted under the watch of central government forces, he added.
He said the party wants to establish a democratic rule in West Bengal. So the next elections will not be monitored by didi’s police but that of dada’s (Prime Minister Narendra Modi).
Ghosh’s comments come two days after Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to West Bengal, where he set an ambitious target of winning 200 of 294 seats in upcoming assembly elections.
