Dilip Ghosh demanded deployment of central force from February.
On the other hand, BJP's Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh demanded deployment of central forces in the state from the month of February. Dilip Ghosh said that for a fair election in the state, it is necessary that central forces should be deployed in the state from February, because the democratic rights of the opposition parties are being violated in the state. It is necessary to instill confidence in the common voters so that they can vote fearlessly.
