The state executive committee of the BJP on Friday expressed concern over continuing violence on party supporters by goons supported by the ruling party TMC, which is scared of BJP’s growth in the Bengal.

“For the past six months since the panchayat election held, TMC with the help of the Congress and CPI-M is desperately trying to force the people not to support the BJP,” BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said.

BJP national secretary and the West Bengal observer Kailash Viajyvargiya, national secretary Rahul Sinha and other senior leaders attended the two-day state executive meeting, which will be ended on Saturday at EZCC in Salt Lake.

The state party will also decide the date for protest march towards the administrative headquarter Nabanna, in protest against the violence during the board formation of the panchayat.

A draft will be prepared to fix the strategy of the campaign on National Register of Citizens (NRC) issue in the state. Ghosh said that all other Opposition parties including CPI-M and Congress are directionless and those parties are trying to strengthen their position by clutching the hand of the TMC.

“The nonstop fight against TMC and its corrupt administration by our party supporters proved that the BJP is the main Opposition party in the West Bengal,” he said.

Ghosh said that police are being used to prevent the BJP’s rise in the Bengal. “Even our party supporters were accused in false narcotic cases. In spite of all oppression our supporters are giving a hard fight which is strengthening our base in the West Bengal,” said Dilip Ghosh.

He said BJP activists must aim Lok Sabha election as the prime target because it will be a semifinal match before the Assembly poll.

“There are unprecedented terror took place during the panchayat poll and formation of panchayat board. BJP winning candidates were kidnapped and intimated. Around 250 vistaraks( involved in party’s expansion work) were evicted from their residences. These facts proved that we are the main Opposition here,” said Ghosh.
