State BJP chief Dilip Ghosh stated the get together is towards any type of division of West Bengal (File).


Amid rising criticism towards the BJP over proposals by two of its MP for making a union territory and a state by carving out components of West Bengal, the get together’s management on Tuesday cautioned leaders towards violating the get together line, which is towards any division of the state.

The improvement comes days after BJP MP from Alipurduar John Barla and Bishnupur MP Saumitra Khan stoked an issue by demanding a Union Territory for north Bengal districts and a separate state comprising the Junglemahal area and different areas of south Bengal respectively.

“Some of our leaders have made certain comments in their personal capacity. It has nothing to do with our party line or opinion, which is against any form of division of Bengal. Everybody has to toe the party line as a loyal soldier. The violation of party line won’t be tolerated,” BJP state president Dilip Ghosh stated.

Within hours of Mr Ghosh’s assertion, Mr Khan stated that he has made these feedback in his private capability. “I sought a separate state for the Junglemahal area as it is the demand of the locals. There has been no development in the region. My comments are not the view of the party,” Mr Khan stated.

Mr Barla is but to react to Mr Ghosh’s assertion.

Ruling Trinamool Congress spokesperson Sougata Ray sought to know why the BJP will not be expelling Mr Barla and Mr Khan for violating the get together line.

“If the BJP does not endorse the statements of its MPs, why is it not expelling them? The party is planning to create unrest in the state,” the senior TMC MP stated.
