'Ghosh's way of instigating party workers against cops unfortunate'

Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress Secretary General Partha Chatterjee on Friday launched a scathing attack on state BJP president for instigating party workers to attack policemen.
While addressing BJP workers at the thana gherao programme organised by the party to protest against TMC's atrocities during the three-tier Panchayat elections and after, Ghosh said the police force had been working as agents of the Trinamool Congress. "It may so happen that our party workers may attack police stations and put them on fire. Also, they may attack houses of police officers."
Coming down heavily on the BJP, Chatterjee said: "It is unfortunate that the state president of a party is using such language which is unparliamentary. It reflects nothing else but Ghosh's bad taste."
Chatterjee said his body language and the expressions he used do not go with the political culture of Bengal. "The way he is instigating his party workers against the police is most unfortunate. The people of Bengal are watching his behaviour and they will give a befitting reply during the elections," he said.
He said "BJP is such a shameless party that despite being a distant second the leaders have failed to assess the minds of the people of Bengal. The state has a political culture and tradition and any attempt to terrorise the police force or divide people on the basis of religion will become a boomerang." It may be recalled that BJP national president Amit Shah during his visit to the city in 2017 had asked Ghosh to "use his language carefully" at a press conference at the Kolkata Press Club.
