TMC claims, Dilip Ghosh is being thrown out of Bengal, BJP’s counterattack

In what appears to be a word of advice for BJP national vice-president Dilip Ghosh, the TMC on Thursday said he should oppose attempts by the saffron party leadership to “pull him out of Bengal” by delegating responsibilities in other states. Ghosh, whose tenure as Bengal BJP president has so far yielded most gains for the saffron camp, has recently been asked by top officials to look after organizational matters in other states.

The BJP leader insisted that he would continue to play a key role in the Bengal unit despite his responsibilities in other states, but the TMC termed it an “attempt to cut his wings”. Senior TMC leader and state minister Firhad Hakim said, “Dilip Ghosh is a dear friend. I feel bad for him. The injustice done to him is unjustified. I think he should protest this injustice. We want that.” He should stay in Bengal.” ,

Echoing him, TMC general secretary Kunal Ghosh said the BJP leader should oppose the move by a section of party leaders to sideline him. “It is unfortunate to see the way he is being treated by others in the party. Dilip Ghosh should oppose this, he has our full support,” the TMC leader said.

The development comes days after BJP MP and state vice-president Arjun Singh rejoined the ruling TMC, calling it his “ghar wapsi”. Ghosh, however, denied giving much importance to the statements of TMC leaders and said that the decision to hand over the responsibility of other states to him or any other leader was part of BJP’s normal working style.

“This is not an extraordinary decision. Leaders and national office bearers are often assigned responsibilities in other states. That doesn’t mean I can’t look after organizational matters in West Bengal. I don’t give much importance to what others say . ,” They said. State BJP spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said, “A regional party like TMC can never understand the working of a national party.”

“Those who do not understand the working of a national party and have never been a part of any pan-India party, make such naive remarks,” he said. The state BJP unit was trying hard to keep its flock together after five MLAs, including former Union minister Babul Supriyo and its national vice president Mukul Roy, joined the TMC after last year’s assembly polls.
