Accusing the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) government of wiping out every sign of opposition, West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Monday said that an “unofficial emergency” has been imposed in West Bengal and the democratic rights are being snatched away from the masses in the state.

Ghosh further went on to claim that several top leaders from the TMC are in touch with the BJP and willing to join the party.

"The democratic rights of the masses have been snatched away. The people are not allowed to vote freely and fairly in the last panchayat elections. An unofficial emergency has been imposed in the state," Ghosh was quoted while addressing a rally in Kolkata on Monday.

Talking about the recent panchayat polls in the state, he said, despite the “region of terror” the BJP had won nearly 6000 seats which proves that the people of the state are with the party.

"The TMC is trying to wipe out every sign of opposition from West Bengal, that is the reasons our workers are being killed every day. But, we will continue our democratic fight till we end the misrule of the TMC government," Ghosh alleged.

Earlier, two BJP activists - 35-year-old Dulal Kumar and 20-year-old Trilochan Mahato were found hanging in West Bengal's Purulia district on June 2 and May 31 respectively.

"After 30 June, the top leadership of TMC will fall sick seeing the number of TMC leaders joining BJP," Ghosh stated.
