Ghosh asserted that government initiatives in West Bengal were stalled due to a lack of planning and funding.
On Sunday, BJP vice-president Dilip Ghosh questioned Trinamool Congress general secretary Abhishek Banerjee’s travel to Tripura, stating that the Northeastern state’s civic elections had left the party with little. He said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s pet project ‘Duare Sarkar’ (government at the doorsteps), whose second edition was set to begin on Sunday, was cancelled due to a lack of funding, and that the TMC should instead focus on West Bengal’s development.
“Why is he (Abhishek Banerjee) going when TMC has nothing left in Tripura?” “The people of Tripura have made it clear that such a party would not exist there,” Ghosh said. Instead, he believes the TMC administration should ensure that West Bengal residents do not have to look for work outside the state.
“Whether TMC thrives in Tripura or Goa will be seen later,” he continued, “but for now, they should focus on Bengal.” The TMC is attempting to spread its wings across the country, announcing that it will contest the assembly elections in Goa and Tripura.

Ghosh asserted that government initiatives in West Bengal were stalled due to a lack of planning and funding. “They’re cancelling Duare Sarkar citing COVID, but there are no finances,” he explained.
TMC MP Sougata Roy retorted to the BJP politician, asking if “Dilip Ghosh has checked the West Bengal government’s treasury.” The programme was cancelled, according to Roy, to avoid crowding at the ‘Duare Sarkar’ centres, where people, mostly women, line up in enormous numbers for various programmes such as widow and old-age pensions.
