BJP to follow Tripura model to defeat Trinamool Congress: Dilip Ghosh

26 Dec 2018

BJP would follow the ‘Tripura model’ to oust Trinamool Congress from West Bengal, claimed party state president Dilip Ghosh in a public meeting in Old Malda today. However, law violation programme by district BJP in presence of Ghosh was concluded almost peacefully in front district administrative and police headquarter today. Elaborate police arrangements were made around the venue to tackle all untoward situation.
Ghosh and Sayantan Basu, another senior state BJP leader lambasted the state government alleging administrative failure in all respects. State BJP leaders particularly targeted police in their speeches alleging that a section of police officials were acting as agents of Trinamool Congress.
“CPM that ruled Tripura for 24 years at a stretch was toppled by BJP democratically. What no other opposition party could do, BJP made that possible politically,” Ghosh said.
Explaining the ‘Tripura model’ Ghosh said, “This model ensures fearless and free franchise by all voters. If the voters can cast their votes independently without any influence, Trinamool would be extinct from West Bengal.”
“Trinamool run state government was made by people with high expectations. But the government is now working to satisfy personal vendetta of the Chief Minister. Unemployed youths, women, students, government employees – all have been deprived by the state government in one way or the other,” he alleged.
Accusing Trinamool of encouraging corruption and hooliganism, the state BJP chief said, “Corruption is now a common phenomenon in state. Illegal arms factory, fake currency peddling and cattle smuggling are going on without any hindrances in the state.”
BJP leaders also claimed that Congress and CPM had become politically irrelevant in West Bengal. “Trinamool has been trying to keep those parties sans people’s support alive to deter BJP. However, such an attempt would be foiled by the people of the state,” Ghosh said.
He also claimed that defeat of BJP in recent elections in five states would not affect the party’s growth in West Bengal.
Warning the police personnel, Basu said, “We have made a list of those police personnel who at the behest of Trinamool have been trying to mobilize police in favour of the ruling party. Once BJP comes to power, those identified police officials would face all sorts of punishments.”
The BJP leaders were heard encouraging the crowd of party workers with ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogan at frequent intervals also.
As the BJP workers tried to head towards the district collectorate building, large contingent of police personnel intervened and the BJP workers had to give up after moderate scuffles with police personnel.
