BJP criticises state’s move to rename West Bengal


The BJP on Tuesday criticised the West Bengal government’s decision to rename West Bengal, alleging the TMC wants to wipe out the history of painful Partition that the country had witnessed in 1947.

“The state government has nothing to do and that is why they are either painting the state with blue and white paint, or are trying to change names.

What purpose will it serve only they know. They are trying to wipe out the painful history of Partition,” BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said. Ghosh thinks that a state government takes decision on the basis of the demand of the masses.


“The state government takes decision on the basis of demand of the masses. My question is: was there any such demand for a change? Because the TMC-run state government enjoys majority does not mean that they will do whatever they like,” Ghosh said.
