Election Commission banned Dilip Ghosh

After serving notice to the Bengal BJP chief for his remarks on Cooch Behar’s Sitalkuchi incident, the Election Commission banned Dilip Ghosh from campaigning for 24 hours from April 15 at 7 pm to 7 pm on April 16.

Earlier, the Election Commission issued notice to Dilip Ghosh and he was asked to clear. But the Election Commission was not impressed with his explanation. The BJP Bengal president had made a statement after four people were killed when central forces opened fire during polling in Cooch Behar’s Sitalkuchi on April 10.

At a public rally in Baranagar, Ghosh had said, “Naughty boys received bullets at Sitalkuchi. Central forces will be there in the booth. And if anyone crosses limit, you have seen what has happened. More Sitalkuchi-like incidents will happen in the future.”
