KOLKATA: West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Tuesday said Muslims haven't received their dues under the Mamata Banerjee-led government, and it's time the minority community secures its rights.

Speaking at an intellectual meet at Hastings party office, Ghosh said the TMC had been pursuing "politics of appeasement", but the party did nothing to uplift the financial status of Muslims.

"If the TMC has so much love for the Muslims, why are they so poor? The Sachar Committee had said Muslims of Bengal are very poor," he stated.

Ghosh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's gesture to provide food grains to all amid the Covid-19 pandemic was meant to benefit all, irrespective of their religious beliefs.
