New Delhi [India], Dec. 12 (ANI): Tearing into West Bengal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Dilip Ghosh for his remark on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Monday said the former has stooped to a 'new low' of politics. "The BJP are desperate to silence the voice of opposition. So, they are indulging in cheap low level politics. This is a new low in politics," said TMC leader Derek O'Brien. He further said that Ghosh has spewed deeply dangerous, threatening, abusive and completely false personal allegation against Mamata. "The BJP cannot fight Mamata on policy, good governance and principle and her stand on demonetisation on behalf of millions of people who have been affected by the government's policy," he said. Ghosh on Sunday said that TMC chief Mamata Banerjee, has lost her mind after the demonetisation drive and that was why she recently visited Delhi and Patna. "During the last elections also, she had said she would tie Prime Minister Modi with a rope. When she was staging protests in Delhi, if we wanted we could have thrown her out of Delhi by grabbing her hair as we have our police deployed there, but we didn't do so. How can a Chief Minister use such words for the prime minister, it's not right," he said. (ANI)
