Terming West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's visit to a temple in Birbhum district as "soft Hindutva", state BJP President Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday said the ruling party was trying to arrest consolidation of "Hindu votes" in favour of his party.
"If we go to temples, we are branded as communal. But if Trinamool leaders visit temples, they remain secular. The Trinamool Congress is practising soft Hindutva in Bengal to stop the consolidation of Hindu votes in favour of BJP," he said.
