New Delhi: West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh has been attacked for the second time in the last 15 days.
Stones were pelted at the convoy of the BJP leader. The attack took place in Murshidabad. Stones were thrown at the BJP state president's car. Dilip Ghosh has accused Trinamool Congress workers of carrying out the assault.
Earlier, Dilip Ghosh and other BJP leaders were attacked in Alipurduar. In a similar incident on Wednesday, a group of BJP workers were also attacked at Ghosh's rally in Birbhum district. Some vehicles were also vandalized in the incident. BJP workers have alleged that TMC activists are trying to intimidate the party and hurl indigenous bombs at them.
Earlier, Dilip Ghosh remarked that Bengal has turned into 'second Kashmir', as militants are being arrested every day and illegal bomb making factories are being searched.
"West Bengal has turned into another Kashmir. Terrorists are being arrested every day and illegal bomb-making factories are being tracked every other day. The only factories operating here are the ones that manufacture bombs," the Bengal BJP chief said.
In response, TMC reprimanded Dilip Ghosh and asked him to focus on Uttar Pradesh, where the 'rule of law' has ended.
"Dilip Ghosh is trying to tarnish the image of West Bengal with the connivance of outsiders. Before commenting on the environment of the state, they should focus their attention on BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh, where the rule of law does not exist," TMC leader Kunal Ghosh said.
The BJP attacked the ruling TMC government over the worsening law and order and political killings in the state for assembly elections in 2021. On Tuesday, BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya said that the law and order situation had reached its nadir in West Bengal under the TMC, even though the Chief Minister herself is a woman, but security for women is the worst in the state.
Political violence in West Bengal has led to the death of at least 12 political activists in the state since June. Six of these workers were from the BJP.
More than 120 BJP workers have lost their lives under TMC rule. This was revealed by BJYM President Tejashwi Surya during his rally to the West Bengal secretariat 'Nabanna' last month.
