State BJP chief Dilip Ghosh stated that the intellectuals are not willing to raise their voice against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the atrocities being committed against BJP workers.
He said in reference to an open letter written by 49 celebrities.
Aparna Sen, Anurag Kashyap, Mani Ratnam and actor/director Konkona Sen Sharm had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in July expressing their concern over the growing the cases of lynching.
Reacting to this and said that most of the 49 intellectuals who sent the letter to PM are from Bengal. But those same people don’t speak about political killings of BJP workers in the state.
Ghosh passed his statements at an outreach programme organised by ‘Save Bengal’ initiative of the BJP, which was launched in 2018 through the Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee Research Foundation, a think tank affiliated to the party.Also Read: Actor-turned-BJP leader Joy Banerjee targets former Kolkata Mayor's close associate with sexist comment
