Dilip Ghosh's derogatory comments on Mamata Banerjee trigger row; TMC seeks action against BJP leader

July 07, 2022 05:20 PM

Kolkata: Voicing outrage over the alleged unsavoury comments by BJP national vice-president Dilip Ghosh against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the programme of a leading media group, Trinamool Congress general secretary Abhishek Banerjee has demanded his arrest.

During an interaction at the 'India Today East Conclave', Ghosh had allegedly made derogatory remarks about Banerjee's family. He allegedly also made comments against the chief minister, referring to her ‘Banglar Meye’ (Daughter of Bengal) campaign during the last assembly polls in Bengal and her later visit to Goa where she had claimed her affinity with the coastal state.

Expressing shock at the utterances by the former state BJP president, the Diamond Harbour Trinamool Congress MP on Wednesday tweeted, “Outrageous. PM @narendramodi, it is about time to get this loose tongue arrested! Is this how @BJP4India leaders talk about the only sitting woman Chief Minister of the nation?”

Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar in a video expressed shock that such crass words could be used by a political personality against a woman, who happens to be the only woman chief minister in the country.

Dastidar said she was wearing a black badge in protest against the “misogynistic” comment by Ghosh and demanded action against him. State BJP leaders could not be contacted for reaction.
