Former Bengal BJP President and currently Vice President of the national BJP have questioned the veracity of the letter that was shot at Ghosh from the BJP headquarters in New Delhi restricting him from talking to the media.
Ghosh on Wednesday morning, after being censored by the party, while addressing a media gathering in Kolkata questioned, “Is the letter even, correct? How did something like this which is supposed to be confidential and remain within the party get leaked to the media? I have not received any such letter from the party and moreover we have seen so many such fake letters previously as well. I don’t know the validity of this letter.”
The BJP had sent a letter to Dilip Ghosh on 30 May 2022 expressing the national leadership’s unhappiness over his comments where he was seen lashing out at his colleagues and the state president Sukanta Mazumdar in West Bengal and had asked him to restrict himself from making any comments to the media.
In the letter sent by BJP’s National General Secretary, Arun Singh, the party said, “The National leadership of the BJP is deeply concerned at the issuance of such statements through the media. On the instructions of the National President JP Nadda, I wish to convey to you (Dilip Ghosh) the party’s deep anguish and concern at issuance of such statements and advice you to always refrain from going to the media or any public for a, about your own colleagues either in the state of West Bengal or anywhere else.”
When Ghosh was asked about his opinion on the censorship that the party has put on him, to which he replied, “What censor? There is no censorship on me. Do you think the party that has recently given me the responsibility for eight states, would put a censor on me? Some of you have shown me this letter, I don’t know from where it had come. I am not aware of anything like this.”
Ghosh has always been in the news for making some headline breaking comments on Bengal and Bengal politics. Ghosh has never been seen mincing words even when it comes to criticising his own party colleagues. But recently, Dilip Ghosh was seen directly attacking a part of the BJP’s state leadership and questioning their leadership capabilities while talking to the media.
Sources close to Ghosh indicates that he has been upset over the fact that the Central BJP has removed him from West Bengal and has asked him to stay out of West Bengal and was also recently given the responsibility of eight states, excluding Bengal where he would have to work and strengthen the party at the booth level.
