West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh has threatened the TMC cadres with getting their legs and ribs broken if they do not mend their ways in the next six months. Ghosh, while addressing a rally in East Midnapore’s Haldia, went on to say that TMC cadres will reach the crematorium if they continue with their mischief.
Dilip Ghosh said the Union government will ensure free and fair Assembly elections in Bengal. Notably, the state election is likely to be held in April or May next year.
The state BJP chief said the Assembly polls in West Bengal will be held without the presence of the state police but ‘in the presence of central forces”. Dilip Ghosh then went on to warn the TMC cadres to mend their ways in the next six months or “their hands, legs and ribs will be broken” and they will have to “visit a hospital”.
Will send TMC cadres to crematorium: Dilip Ghosh
“I tell Mamata di’s people, who do mischief, to correct themselves within 6 months or else their hands, legs, ribs & heads will be broken. You’ll have to go to the hospital before being able to go home,” Dilip Ghosh was quoted as saying a news agency.
“If they increase mischief, they’ll be sent to the crematorium,” Dilip Ghosh said, adding, “The Centre will ensure free and fair elections and the people of West Bengal will be able to excise their democratic right without any fear.”
Meanwhile, TMC has said that the BJP was trying to unleash a reign of terror. Congress leader Jitin Prasada slammed Dilip Ghosh saying it was the language of a “common thug”.
He tweeted, “Irrespective of political differences no one should be reducing the political discourse to the level of a street fight or the language of a common thug. What makes it worse is that the head of the BJP state unit resorting to this!”
Dilip Ghosh often rakes controversy
It is not the first time that the BJP leader has raked a controversy. Earlier, he had said that coronavirus is gone and the Modi government had efficiently handled the pandemic.
The statement came when the entire country was registering a huge surge in COVID-19 cases and there was an acute shortage of beds for patients infected with the deadly virus.
