The BJP on Wednesday alleged that the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal did not allow its state President Dilip Ghosh to attend a meeting at Sitalkuchi in Cooch Behar district.
"Our state President Dilip Ghosh was going to Sitalkuchi for a meeting.
The way his convoy was blocked by police and Trinamool supporters is undemocratic, " Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s new entrant Mukul Roy said.
"During the Left Front rule, people's right of casting votes was restricted but there was space for opposition parties to conduct meetings, rallies and other programmes.
Now, even that is gone, " he added.
Roy, who was one of the founding members of Trinamool Congress, has been criticising the state government and the ruling party aggressively after joining the BJP.
