'Day off for me': Dilip Ghosh after getting ban for 24 hrs by EC

After being banned by the Election Commission for making "highly provocative and inciteful remarks", WB BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said, "It is fine. EC wants free and fair elections and this time the elections are little high voltage and this has been started by Mamata Banerjee. Every action has a reaction. EC has all the rights to ban someone if they think someone is not conducting well... Our party is not running by a single person. We have other members who'll hold rallies now. This is a day off for me. Unlike Mamata Banerjee, I am not protesting against EC's decision." The eight-phase Bengal Assembly elections will conclude on April 29.
