Mr Ghosh’s comment sparked a sharp response from Roy who claimed that the BJP leader has no “formal education” and is in contact with the TMC as he no longer enjoys the trust of the saffron camp.

However, he later regretted such a remark.
Sougata Roy is a former politician. He was once a professor. But we are stunned to hear the language he used to attack the opposition. He tells his party cadres that shoes will be made by removing the skin. day is not far off when people will beat him up with shoes. The TMC leaders will be beaten up with shoes in different parts of the state,” Mr Ghosh said.
Mr Roy said he would not comment on the BJP leader’s comment.
“It is beyond my dignity to comment on what a person with little or no formal education says. Dilip Ghosh himself is in contact with our party because he no longer enjoys the trust of the BJP leadership,” he said.
Mr Ghosh also claimed that such comments show that TMC leaders are now “afraid” because two of their senior colleagues – Partha Chatterjee and Anubrata Mondal – are behind bars.
Mr. Chatterjee was arrested by ED in connection with the school recruitment scam, while Mr. Mondal was arrested by the CBI for allegedly not cooperating in a cattle smuggling case.
