Everything is going well in West Bengal BJP? Actually this question is arising because the former state chief of the party suddenly ‘finished’ the march on Tuesday. We are talking about Dilip Ghosh. Amid the march to the secretariat of the BJP’s West Bengal unit, confusion prevailed when senior party leader Dilip Ghosh, who was leading a procession, made an abrupt call to “end Nabanna rally” following clashes between police and party workers. Declared and went back from that place.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national vice-president Ghosh announced the end of the rally when the procession going towards the secretariat ‘Nabanna’ at around 2.30 pm was stopped by the police near Rabindra Setu (Howrah Bridge). Police used tear gas, water cannons and lathi-charge to stop the protesters from moving forward. The BJP, led by different leaders, took out three processions from different places to protest against the alleged corruption of the Trinamool Congress government.
When BJP state unit president Sukanta Majumdar was informed about Ghosh’s announcement to end the Nabanna campaign, he said, “Dilip da’s procession must have been stopped by the police and it ended, but other processions are on.” The police also stopped Majumdar’s rally and he sat on the road in protest. Later the police took him into custody. Ghosh later told PTI that the media misunderstood his remarks.
The former BJP state unit president said, “As soon as the police used barbaric force to stop the procession led by me near Howrah Bridge, in which many people were injured, I announced that our march to Nabanna would end. It is done. I didn’t talk about other processions. We are united on the issue.”
BJP state spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said Ghosh’s remarks came after police used force to stop a procession led by him from the College Square area. Bhattacharya said, “Since a senior leader was given the responsibility to lead each rally from different places in Howrah and Kolkata, it was not possible for Dilip-da to continue the protest elsewhere. Nothing more. to be seen.” The Trinamool Congress (TMC) did not comment on the issue.
TMC’s state spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said, “BJP’s Nabanna campaign turned out to be a flop show. They wanted to be in the news by vandalizing, damaging and setting fire to properties in the state. But the alert police force did not allow the situation to deteriorate further. BJP’s game plan has been thwarted. Nothing more to say about it.”
