West Bengal BJP state president Dilip Ghosh, known as a bitter critic of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has surprised everyone stating that she is the only leader from the state, who is having best chances to become Prime Minister. He even said that Banerjee’s name was first in the list of leaders who can be prime minister.
“If the selection was to be made from Bengal, Mamata Banerjee has the brightest chance. She is dreaming of becoming the next PM, and therefore I wish her luck. She needs to be in good health, as the fate of the state depends on her success,” said Ghosh, while extending birthday wishes to her.
He made the statement, the video of which was uploaded on Youtube around 9.15 pm, while wishing Banerjee good health on her birthday. Born on Jan 5, 1955, the Bengal chief minister turned 64, yesterday.
Notably, Ghosh’s statement came as a shocker for the state BJP as it is engaged in a bitter fight against the TMC over proposed Amit Shah’s proposed Rath Yatra in three districts of West Bengal. Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear on January 8 a plea by the BJP against a Calcutta High Court order not allowing the party to undertake Rath Yatra in West Bengal.
