Mamata said Trinamool Congress is not a militant organisation like the BJP.
“Every bullet will be made to count. Leaders who indulge in hooliganism in Bengal will soon either be in jail or straight away there will be an encounter,” Ghosh said while addressing a protest rally in Jalpaiguri.
Reacting to the Ghosh’s threat, TMC MLA and state minister Gautam Deb said that the state BJP chief was speaking the language of a “terrorist” and not a political leader.
