“In villages, BJP supporters are being threatened and just to stay alive many are being forced to join the ruling Trinamool Congress,” said Ghosh.

West Bengal BJP spokesperson Shamik Bhattacharya claimed that just to hype the ‘importance’ of the Trinamool Congress, the West Bengal Transport Minister is making ‘false’ claims.

“The TMC is still thinking that after the victory in West Bengal they are the most important political party and just to keep this feeling afloat they are making false claims to malign the BJP leaders,” claimed Bhattacharya.

Notably, two days back BJP leader Sabyasachi Dutta had rejoined the TMC.
