Updated:3 weeks ago

Kolkata, Sep 27 (ANI): Stating the increased violence in poll-bound West Bengal, BJP national vice president Dilip Ghosh on September 27 said that the elections should be cancelled or postponed.“While I was campaigning in Bhabanipur today, TMC workers hurled abuses at me. I was meeting some people at a vaccination center when some people suddenly surrounded me and started jostling. One of our workers was badly beaten,” said Dilip Ghosh. He added, “I was also attacked. My security tried to stop it and they brought out their guns to scare the attackers. Arjun Singh was also surrounded and he was forced to leave the area amid 'go back' slogans. Local police didn't help. Election Commission is aware of everything. We've complained to them several times in Delhi and Kolkata. Despite this, no security arrangement was made. There is no point to hold polls if we can't reach out to voters. Elections should be cancelled or postponed.”
