West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh was stopped by the police today from checking out the cyclone-strike locations of South 24 Parganas district, triggering an argument among the Bharatiya Janata Get together and the ruling Trinamool Congress.
Mr Ghosh was on his way to Canning and Basanti, two of the many areas of the district influenced by cyclone Amphan, to distribute aid elements.
His vehicle was stopped by the law enforcement at Dhalai bridge in close proximity to Garia region of the district.
“I really don’t know why I have been stopped from going to the cyclone-affected spots. The TMC leaders are traveling to these places and distributing reduction supplies. The police is not stopping them. The rule only changes for the BJP leaders,” Mr Ghosh mentioned.
His remark arrived soon after Key Minister Narendra Modi had introduced an advance interim aid of Rs 1,000 crore for the cyclone-strike state and a compensation of Rs 2 lakh to the people of every of those killed and Rs 50,000 for the wounded.
Mr Ghosh threatened to organise a sit-in protest, if he was not authorized to go to the impacted regions.
“If the state federal government needs to go after relief politics, they should get completely ready for a befitting reply from our workers,” he reported.
According to news company Push Belief of India, BJP personnel accompanying Mr Ghosh allegedly pushed the adult males in uniform to make way for the auto of the party’s point out president.
When information agency PTI contacted the law enforcement, they declined to comment about it.
Kolkata Mayor and state minister Firhad Hakim puzzled why the point out BJP was eager on carrying out politics over the distribution of aid resources.
Mr Ghosh experienced on Friday demanded that the guidance should be credited straight to the financial institution accounts of the people afflicted by cyclone Amphan, to stay away from siphoning of income.
