Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh has landed in controversy following his alleged remarks at a public rally inciting violence against the state police and the ruling Trinamool Congress. He has allegedly exhorted his party workers to thrash Trinamool activists and the police. He warned the police he would strip them naked and thrash them publicly. He also warned that if former Union finance minister P Chidambaram could be put behind bars, then Trinamool was small fry. "Just mosquitoes and flies," he said. The police have now filed a case against him, accusing him of inciting violence that's also directed at public servants.
