Kolkata: Senior BJP leader Tathagata Roy once again slamed BJP state president Dilip Ghosh and other leaders over the poll debacle.

The former Governor of Tripura on Thursday took to Twitter and wrote about the ongoing post-poll violence by the alleged Trinamool Congress goons and along with it slammed BJP West Bengal observers Kailash Vijayvargiya, Shiv Prakash, Arvind Menon and West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh for the poll debacle.

“A very close person came crying today. Said a few thousand men who had worked for BJP hv bn driven out by Trinamooli goons. They will possibly have to pay hefty sums of money to be allowed to return. I am helpless. Of the state leaders KSA have run away. D doesn’t receive calls!,” read the tweet of Tathagata.

Talking to Free Press Journal, the senior BJP leader expressed his concern over the ongoing post-poll violence in the state.

“Calcutta High Court has praised the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for curbing the violence but the reality is the violence and also the cut-money of the TMC is still continuing in West Bengal. We will have to wait and watch whether the Calcutta High Court’s verdict that all the absconding leaders should be sent back home actually gets implemented or not,” said the former Governor of Tripura.

Notably, Calcutta High Court on May 31 constituted a three-member committee to enable those who had to leave their house due to post-poll violence return home by June 4.

On the other side, slamming Tathagata, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said that those who never visit the field take to social media to malign others.

“There are leaders who never visit the ground and interact with people but instead they slam others on social media, especially those who actually work for the party and increase its strength,” Dilip told the Free Press Journal.
