The BJP’s West Bengal president Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday was attacked by the Trinamool Congress goons who hit his car with bombs and bricks in the Cooch Behar district of North Bengal. Ghosh said that the car’s window glasses including the one on his side were smashed in the attack which took place at Sitalkuchi after a public meeting of his party.
After breaking the glass, a brick also hit him, he said. “If this is the situation, how can one expect free and fair polls in Cooch Behar, where people had voted for change in the 2019 Lok Sabha election,” Ghosh said in a video message.
“I was waiting in my vehicle after our meeting for the people to leave when we were attacked with firearms, bombs, bricks and sticks by people holding TMC flags. It was like a Talibani attack,” Ghosh said.
“State of democracy in Paschim Banga is pathetic. TMC goons carrying TMC flags hurled crude bombs on my vehicle and shattered my vehicle’s window. They also assaulted multiple karyakartas of BJP and also vandalised multiple cars. Police men were seen retreating,” he said on Twitter.
“Every drop of my blood is dedicated towards the service of Maa Bharati, Dilip Ghosh does not fear for his life! There will be an end to this violent rule and we will build “Sonar Bangla” #PoliticalTerrorism of TMC,” Dilip Ghosh tweeted.
