Kolkata: Countering Trinamool Congress’ ‘Khela Hobe Diwas’ on August 16, the Bharatiya Janata Party will observe ‘Pashim Banga Bachao Diwas’ (Save West Bengal day) on the same day.

Addressing a press conference, the BJP chief said that August 16 is known for ‘Great Calcutta Killing’ and also that by declaring that day as ‘Khela Diwas’ Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee made it clear that she wants to transform West Bengal into West Bangladesh.

“Mamata Banerjee is trying hard to merge Bengal with Bangladesh or make West Bengal as West Bangladesh. She doesn’t care about the bloodshed that took place in 1946 on that day. Entire city was smeared with blood and now on that day they will have Khela Diwas but BJPs try to save Bengal is still on and on August 16 we will as usual observe Pashim Bangla Bhachao Diwas,” stated Ghosh.

Taking further potshots at the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Ghosh said that on one side she is dreaming of becoming the next Prime Minister and on the other side the unemployment rate in West Bengal is increasing with each day.

"The TMC had promised to give 28 lakh jobs but on the contrary unemployment rate in West Bengal is the highest and people are leaving for other states in search of jobs. Spending crores of rupees they started a Silicon Valley project and now even that is abandoned. Due to sheer politics, the TMC is not bothered about development,” further alleged Ghosh.

Asked about Mamata to meet the opposition parties in New Delhi to unite against the BJP to which the West Bengal BJP chief said that ahead of the 2019 Parliamentary election Mamata had done a ‘United India’ rally hoping to win the election.

“In 2019 Mamata didi’s dream broke of becoming the next Prime Minister and in 2024 her dream will again break as BJP will come to power with more majority,” added Ghosh also mentioning that due to TMC Supremo’s politics Metro Dairy is sold and chaos is seen in East Bengal club.
