BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh Calls Bengal ‘Worse Than Kashmir’, Compares It With Iran, Iraq

Kolkata: West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party chief Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday alleged that the law and order situation of the state has become “worse than Kashmir” and is “similar to that of Iran and Iraq”.

He also accused the Trinamool Congress government of delaying the local bodies’ elections.

“If municipal elections can take place in Hyderabad and Assam, why not here. The situation is worse than Kashmir and is similar to that of Iran and Iraq. Didi (Mamata Banerjee) has proved that West Bengal’s law and order is not conducive to go for polls,” he said while addressing a party meeting.

Ghosh said the BJP was not allowed to campaign during the last panchayat elections, and its workers were beaten up and driven out of booths. He asserted that the TMC will lose the elections to the Kolkata Municipal Corporation and other civic bodies.

Ghosh’s comments came after a senior state election commission (SEC) official had on Tuesday said the West Bengal government was keen on holding the KMC polls during the first half of March.

Civic polls were slated to be held in April 2020, but the state government deferred the process owing to the COVID- 19 pandemic.
