BJP’s Dilip Ghosh Shown Black Flags In Darjeeling, He Blames Trinamool

Dilip Ghosh claimed supporters of Bimal Gurung and TMC were behind the incident


BJP West Bengal unit chairman Dilip Ghosh received black flags from supporters of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) as he reached the city of Darjeeling today to participate in a party program.

Mr Ghosh was shown black flags by GJM supporters near Ghum station as he reached the hills to participate in the state-wide BJP ‘Poriborton Yatra’.

GJM supporters alleged that although the BJP won the seat of Darjeeling Lok Sabha for consecutive terms, the hills remained neglected and no development work had been done by the Center.

Supporters of the GJM also raised the slogan of “turning back the clock” against the leader of the BJP.

Mr Ghosh claimed that Bimal Gurung and TMC supporters were behind the incident because they feared the growing support for BJP in the hills.


“This is the situation in Bengal where the opposition parties are not allowed to carry out their political programs. We have to change this atmosphere of fear,” he said.

In 2017, Dilip Ghosh and a few other BJP leaders were reportedly heckled and beaten up by GJM supporters on their way to the hills.
