Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh attacked West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee over her dharna against EC's campaign ban. Ghosh blamed the Bengal CM for deaths in Cooch Behar during the fourth phase of polling. “She (Mamata) is targeting the Election Commission and giving direction to loot EVMs. Mamata Banerjee is completely responsible for the deaths (in Sitalkuchi). She is not following the decision taken by EC and is sitting on dharna. She, who protests against SC and the Constitution, will never follow law,” said Ghosh. Mamata is sitting on dharna next to a Mahatma Gandhi's statue at Kolkata's Mayo road. EC imposed a 24-hour ban on the TMC supremo from campaigning in any manner. Ban has been imposed over Mamata's remarks against the central forces. Meanwhile, EC also issued a notice to Ghosh for his remarks on the Sitalkuchi incident.

BJP West Bengal president Dilip Ghosh on April 13 reacted on state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sitting on dharna after Election Commission banned her from campaigning for 24 hours. Blaming CM Mamata for the killings in Cooch Behar, he said that "she is protesting against Supreme Court and the Constitution of India". "I don't believe that she (Mamata Banerjee) will follow the law. It doesn't suit a Chief Minister," said Ghosh.

While speaking to ANI, BJP chief JP Nadda on April 13 said, "She (Mamata Banerjee) can go (to Cooch Behar), it's democracy but she said nothing about Anand Burman, a 22-yr-old youth who was killed. We spoke about everyone, the four people who were killed, Anand Burman, and even the Bihar SHO who was beaten to death in Uttar Dinajpur. She is the CM but she said nothing. She looks at everything through the glasses of politics. We look at society from a development point of view and we speak of taking everyone together."
Over CM Mamata Banerjee's protest against Election Commission's decision of banning her from election campaigning, BJP chief JP Nadda on April 13 took a jibe and said that she thinks that she is alone the truthful one. "EC is an independent body. They might have done it by noticing something. But Mamata ji's stand is that if you listen to her then everything is fine but if you don't then everything is wrong, that she alone is the truthful one. That's not the case," said JP Nadda.
