In A Shocker, BJp Leader Says Making Bombs Normal In Bengal Politics

Kolkata: Dilip Ghosh, a Bengal BJP leader, made a highly contentious statement today in response to a party senior’s return to the Trinamool Congress, which appeared to trivialize political violence. He informed reporters, “It is usual in Bengal politics to create bombs.”

Arjun Singh, a BJP Vice President and Member of Parliament, returned to Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress on Sunday, a party he had left in 2019. He also wasted no time in proclaiming that Mamata Banerjee should be Prime Minister.

Dilip Ghosh lashed out at him, saying “those who don’t practise politics based on principles” will find it difficult to stay in the BJP.

Reporters reminded him of his previous claim that Arjun Singh produces explosives, and asked why he had brought him into the BJP in the first place, if that claim was true.

“We have inducted a lot of people. In politics, making bombs is a normal thing in Bengal,” Mr Ghosh, the BJP MP from Kharagpur, said.

“Whoever comes from the Trinamool will be like this only. The law is there to deal with it. The place where he is from, either he creates trouble or others create trouble to target him. When he came to the BJP, the torture against him increased. This we have seen. I have taken up his complaints in parliament as well. He could not adjust, that is his problem,” the BJP leader added.

For years, Bengal has seen violent politics, with party workers using country bombs to kill opponents. In the 2021 Bengal election, the BJP, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, made it a major campaign issue.

 “If you don’t say you want to see Mamata Banerjee as PM then you cannot stay in the Trinamool Congress,” said Mr Ghosh on Arjun Singh’s praise for the Trinamool chief.

“BJP is the largest political party in the world. Those who don’t practise politics based on principles will find it difficult to remain in the BJP. Those who believe in principles, policy and framework, for them, BJP is the right party. Those who have left the Trinamool and come for them, it is difficult to stay in the BJP. They have to adjust. Those who can adjust are in the party. Those who can’t are leaving,” he asserted.
