Ghosh is in the district to take part in the saffron party's 'Rathyatra'. He was attacked when he was on his way to Mathabhanga in the district.
"TMC leaders attacked my car and shouted slogans demanding that I should go back. Some of my party workers were injured during the violence. The police were watching merely as mute spectators," he said after the incident at Sitai More in Sitalkuchi.
The district police administration said they are looking into the incident.
Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah, several top BJP leaders and chief ministers such as Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Nitin Gadkari, Nirmala Sitharaman, Raman Singh, Yogi Adityanath, Uma Bharati and Giriraj Singh will participate in the campaign.
Modi is likely to attend four rallies to give a thrust to the party's campaign in the state ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
