BJP slammed TMC on holding of polls

News Desk: West Bengal politics is marked mainly by the rivalry between the Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool and the Bharatiya Janata Party. On Friday BJP Bengal took a dig at the ruling party by saying “Mamata Banerjee is scared of holding polls”

At Mayo Road during protesting for ‘Save Bengal, Save Democracy’ state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said “Democracy is being throttled in West Bengal. Mamata Banerjee did not hold the municipal elections fearing that her party will suffer massive defeat. She is no longer willing to hold the elections as she has lost faith in the people”

He added “She won the 2016 state Assembly elections on EVMs. Now, she wants ballots to be used in the election. Whether the elections are held through ballots or EVMs, the BJP will defeat the Trinamool Congress”

He further added “The TMC government is doing what the CPM government did to stop the Opposition. BJP workers are being killed, false cases are being slapped against them and police are being used to threaten them. A reign of terror has been unleashed on us. Even MLAs are not safe here. That’s why we have hit the streets to mark our protest. A person will need a microscope to look for democracy in Bengal”

Speaking about the tyrannical rule of the ruling party Dilip Ghosh said “If you dare to go against the state government then you are done. We have organised this protest to show the real face of the TMC government”

He added “Hundreds of BJP workers have been killed, and around 2,000 party workers falsely implicated and put behind bars. Time has come to take Bengal on the path of growth and development”
