KOLKATA: Former Meghalaya governor Tathagata Roy led a blistering attack against the “foursome” Kailash-Dilip-Shiv-Arvind (KDSA) – Bengal BJP minder Kailash Vijayvargiya, Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh, party leaders Shiv Prakash and Arvind Menon – the day he was summoned to Delhi for his controversial “nogorer noti” remarks against the party’s Tollywood celeb candidates.
These candidates had gone on a boat trip with their political adversary, Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra, in the run-up to polls.
Roy, who is down with Covid, is upset over BJP’s performance in the Bengal assembly polls and has blamed “KDSA” directly for the poll debacle. “They have dragged the names of our respected PM and home minister through mud and have sullied the name of the biggest political party in the world,” the BJP leader posted on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
Roy, who describes himself as a swayamsevak, said the four distributed tickets to “incoming garbage” from Trinamool and added that BJP would now face an exodus of the “garbage” and also old party karyakartas let down by Bengal BJP brass.
“These people have heaped the worst possible insults on ideologically driven BJP workers and devout swayamsevaks who had been relentlessly working for the party since 1980s. Now those very people are suffering the worst persecution from Trinamoolis. But KDSA won’t go to their rescue, they won’t even exhort them to fight back,” Roy said.
