Kolkata, March 6: Bharatiya Janata Party state president Dilip Ghosh has sparked a controversy again on Sunday. This time he threatened the students of Jadavpur University to dire consequences if they try to raise any ‘Anti-National’ slogans in or around the campus. Ghosh even went to the extent of saying that those found doing this, will be beaten with sandals and urged the people to take stringent actions.
Addressing party leaders in Ghosara, situated on party outskirts, Ghosh threatened in his ridiculous tone said, “Jadavpur Viswavidyalaya bose Pakiatan Zindabad bolche. Baire bolle jutiye soja kore debo. Choddo purusher naam bhuliye debo (There are people sitting inside the Jadavpur University and raising slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’. Let them speak these words outside campus, will beat them with sandals. They will forget their ancestors’ names). He did not stop at this and said that there are communist people who are supporting the ill cause of dividing the nation.

Targeting Jawaharlal Nehru University Student’s Union president, Ghosh alleged that political opportunist — Congress president Rahul Gandhi, former chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, CPM leader Sujan Chakrabarty and CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury — are supporting him. He said, “Jara deshvirroshi slogans dicche, tader pashe Rahul Gandhi. Manhush Buddh, Sujan, Yechurir kotha sunche. Tai kanhaiyar noton chencchra chelederke aanche (Those who are raising ‘anti-national’ slogans, Rahul Gandhi is standing beside them. People are listening to Buddhadeb, Sujan and Yechury and this is why idiots like Kanhaiya are now getting a boost).”
This is the not the first time that Ghosh has given such controversial statement. Few days ago too he had said that those raising ‘Anti-national’ slogans will be cut short by 6-inches from top. Though saying such statement in public, till now he has not been arrested and continuously making controversial statements. As the Assembly elections are announced, Left leaders have sought action against the leader.
