We need to induct leaders from other parties to expand base of BJP in Bengal: Dilip Ghosh
On Sunday (January 24), West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh dismissed apprehensions that the turncoats would be given more importance than the old timers in the party which gave a major relief to some of the BJP leaders.
Dilip Ghosh, however, said that the BJP needs to induct people from other political outfits in order to expand its base and come to power in Bengal.
Ghosh clarified that everyone in the party including the newcomers has to abide by the rules and regulations of the party.
When asked about induction of leaders from the TMC, Dilip Ghosh said, “The BJP is a growing force in West Bengal. Our organisation is getting strengthened with each passing day; people from other parties including the TMC are joining us. If we don't take people from other outfits, how will we grow?”
“No matter who joins the camp, I would like to add that everyone has to abide by the rules and regulations of the party. No one is above the party,” he added.
Many TMC leaders, including Suvendu Adhikari, 14 other MLAs and a sitting MP, have switched over to the BJP in the last two years. Three Left MLAs and four Congress legislators have also joined the BJP.
