Kolkata, January 19: Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) West Bengal Chief Dilip Ghosh on Sunday stoked another controversy. During a rally in North 24 Parganas, Ghosh said that when the BJP comes to power, people damaging public property would be identified and shot at. Taking a dig at Mamata Banerjee, Ghosh said, “Under Mamata Banerjee's government, even if one damages public property worth Rs 500 crores, that person escapes it. When we come to power then every such person will be identified and shot at. Nobody will be spared. Dilip Ghosh Re-Elected As West Bengal BJP Chief, Gets Second Term.

Adding further, he said that 50 lakh Muslim infiltrators would be be identified, if needed they would be chased out of the country. He stated, “Firstly their names will be removed from voters' list then Didi (CM Mamata Banerjee) can't appease anyone.” Ghosh said that removing illegal voters from the list would reduce Banerjee’s vote-bank. He claimed that, in the upcoming elections, the BJP would win 200 seats, while, the Trinamool Congress would fail to get 50 seats.
