Kolkata: West Bengal BJP held a closed-door working committee meeting at the party's election office at Kolkata's Hastings area to discuss post-poll and other strategies.
Addressing a press conference after the internal meet, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh stated that from June 23 the BJP will start holding agitation programs across the state against the post-poll violence by the ruling Trinamool Congress.
“Over 25,000 BJP workers are displaced in different parts of the state and also in other states due to the violence. Even after some cadres have returned to their place they are again subjected to violence. Our main target now is to bring back the displaced workers. We have received almost 10,000 complaints from our cadres,” mentioned the BJP chief adding that 40 BJP cadres have died in West Bengal since May 2.
The West Bengal BJP chief also alleged that the ruling Trinamool Congress is doing black-marketing with the vaccines sent by the Central government and several people in West Bengal are denied vaccines due to their affiliations with other political parties.
Meanwhile, according to party sources, the BJP will form a disciplinary committee and will monitor the activities of the party members and in case of any controversy the party will take strict action against them.
“Several BJP leaders are seen maligning the image of the party for which a disciplinary committee will be made and if needed investigation will start against any member who maligns the party,” stated the sources.
The sources also claimed that several leaders have made several complaints to the party chief.
“BJP MP Arjun Singh mentioned that while the candidates were being finalised, initially we were given some other names and someone else were finalised. BJP leader Bharati Ghosh said that poll analyst Prashant Kishor tampered with the VVPAT machine and BJP MP Locket Chatterjee said several BJP workers had threatened people ahead of the poll for which the mandate went in favor of the TMC,” claimed the sources.
Another turncoat leader Sabyasachi Dutta in the closed-door working committee meeting said that the language problem was one of the barriers for the BJP during the Assembly polls.
“There wasn’t a Bengali face for the BJP and there was language issue as well. I respect every language but people of West Bengal prefer Bengali language. Central leaders who came to campaign in the state mostly spoke Hindi and broken Bengali. Being Bengali by birth and saying it by reading the script are two different things,” mentioned the former TMC mayor of Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation (BMC).
