BJP will bring change in Bengal like it did in Tripura: Ghosh
Canning (WB): The West Bengal BJP today said the party will effect a change in Bengal, much like it did in Tripura, where it scripted history by ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI(M)-led Left Front.
"When some BJP supporters were killed in Tripura, people changed the mandate in that state. In Bengal, many more of our supporters have been killed and injured, and their properties destroyed. BJP will bring a similar change in this state," West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh told a press conference here.
Ghosh said "nepotism, corruption and political violence" is rampant in the state, and there is no place for violence in politics.
The West Bengal BJP president was addressing party workers in Aamtala in South 24 Parganas district.
The BJP-IPFT combine yesterday won the Tripura Assembly polls with two-third majority. The BJP and the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura won 43 seats. The CPI(M) won 16 seats and the Congress none.
The elections in 59 seats in the 60-member Assembly were held on February 18.
