TMC unleashing atrocities against BJP: Ghosh
"TMC is unleashing atrocities against the BJP as the party is growing. TMC is following the footsteps of the CPIM which used to unleash violence against the political opponents when it was in power in the state", Ghosh said at the BJP state executive meeting.
During his three-day visit to the state last week, BJP president Amit Shah had also accused the TMC-government of unleashing atrocities on the people in a way never seen since Independence. Ghosh alleged that in Cooch Behar district.
TMC was targeting BJP workers at places like Dinhata, Sitai where a large number of supporters of the Forward Bloc, which was earlier strong in the district, had joined the BJP.
"The people in the state have shown that they are not happy with the TMC rule and the result of recent Kanthi Assembly by-election was an indication. BJP had finished second although the party organisation is weak there", he said.
TMC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee, while reacting to Ghosh's statement, said that clashes were taking place due to instigation by the BJP. "Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is trying to develop the state and BJP is trying to prevent it. They will not succeed. Mamata Banerjee is always with the people", he said.
