File photograph of Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh.
BJP’s West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh was proven black flags by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) supporters as he reached the hill city of Darjeeling on Tuesday to participate in a celebration programme. Ghosh was proven black flags by GJM supporters close to the Ghum railway station as he reached the Hills to participate in the BJP’s state-wide ‘Poriborton Yatra’.
The GJM supporters alleged that although the BJP gained the Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat for consecutive phrases, the Hills remained uncared for and no improvement work was performed by the Centre. The GJM supporters additionally raised ‘return’ slogan in opposition to the BJP chief.
Ghosh claimed that supporters of Bimal Gurung and TMC had been behind the incident as they had been afraid of the rising help for the BJP in the Hills. “This is the situation in Bengal where opposition parties are not allowed to conduct their political programmes.
We need to change this atmosphere of fear,” he stated. In 2017, Ghosh and some different BJP leaders had been allegedly heckled and crushed up by GJM supporters after they had been visiting the Hills.
