Dilip Ghosh, West Bengal BJP President

BJP President JP Nadda’s convoy was attacked in Diamond Harbour in West Bengal on Thursday. Nadda is on a two-day visit to review BJP preparedness before the upcoming elections in West Bengal.

Dilip Ghosh, BJP’s West Bengal state president condemned the attack on BJP President JP Nadda’s convoy on Thursday.  BJP leaders alleged that protesters pelted stones at their vehicles in West Bengal’s Diamond Harbour.

He said, ” This is a black day in the history of Indian politics. Even the media is not safe in West Bengal.”

 

“Mukul Roy and Kailash Vijayvargiya were injured in the attack today. It is a shame on democracy,” Nadda said. “There isn’t a car in our convoy which was not attacked. I am safe because I was travelling in a bulletproof car. This state of lawlessness and intolerance in West Bengal.”

BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya alleged that it was Trinamool Congress’s workers who had attacked the convoy.

Ahead of the West Bengal elections in May 2021, Nadda is on a two-day visit to the state to review BJP’s preparedness and plan of action for campaigning before the elections.

Earlier, Ghosh had also  written a letter saying that the state police department was lax in providing security to the BJP convoy.

Taking cognizance of the matter, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar took to twitter to criticise the ‘lawlessness’ prevalent in West Bengal under Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee.
