Kolkata: BJP president of West Bengal, Dilip Ghosh, said it will ‘gherao’ block development offices of 10 districts on Monday to protest against the “corruption” of Trinamool Congress in distribution of relief materials to those affected by cyclone Amphan.
Ghosh said that the Rs. 1,000 crore allotted by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, for Amphan relief were not provided to the needy.
“None other than the TMC supreme and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee admitted there was corruption in distribution of relief materials. But, is mere admission enough? Taking disciplinary action against the corrupt party men will not change the condition of the poor cyclone-hit villagers as well”, Ghosh said.
On Monday, thousands of BJP activists will be demonstrating outside BDO offices of 160 blocks and submit a deputation to them.
