BJP will fight WB polls under Dilip Ghosh:Kailash Vijayvargiya

BJP will contest the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections with Dilip Ghosh as party's state president, Kailash Vijayvargiya said on Saturday. A national general secretary of the party, Vijayvargiya refuted reports of Ghosh's removal which are being circulated in parts of the media. Vijayvergiya said, "The reports are not only baseless but also misleading and politically motivated. I want to categorically say that West Bengal BJP will fight the assembly election with Dilip Ghosh as its state president. There is no question of replacing him."

Speculation about Ghosh's possible removal gained momentum after an organisational overhaul in the BJP's West Bengal unit. Subrata Chattopadhyay, the state general secretary (organisation) was removed and his deputy Amitava Chakraborty elevated to the post. In the 2019 general elections, the BJP won 18 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal. Leaders of the BJP claim they will end CM Mamata Banerjee's 10-year rule in the upcoming assembly elections due in April-May 2021.
