Kolkata: West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Dilip Ghosh on Sunday, has warned the Trinamool Congress (TMC) cadres to mend their ways in the next six months or they will have their legs and ribs broken.
Ghosh also said that if the TMC cadres continued with their “mischief”, they will have to go to a crematorium.
Addressing a rally in Haldia town, in East Midnapore district, Ghosh claimed that the days of the Mamata Banerjee government were numbered.
“Those TMC cadres who are yet to mend their ways and are still torturing common people should rectify themselves in the next six months,” he said.
“If they don’t, their hands, legs and ribs will be broken and they will have to go to the hospital. If they still continue with their mischief, they will have to go to the crematorium.”
Ghosh said the Centre will ensure free and fair elections in Bengal and that the BJP will “restore democracy” in the state.
“The Assembly polls would not be held with the state police but in the presence of central forces,” he added.
Ghosh’s comments came two days after Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said that the “death knell” of the TMC government had been sounded and set a target of winning more than 200 Assembly seats.
Meanwhile, the ruling Trinamool Congress said that Ghosh was vitiating the political atmosphere of the state.
“These kinds of statements show that the BJP is trying to unleash a reign of terror and vitiate the political atmosphere of the state ahead of the assembly polls,” said TMC leader Saugata Roy. “The people of the state would give them a befitting reply.”
