12 actors from films and TV had joined BJP last week. They included Rishi Kaushik, Kanchana Moitra, Rupanjana Mitra and Biswajit Ganguly. Now it seems the TMC goons are issuing threats to these actors. Actress Rupanjana has spoken out against them on her facebook page.
If this is happening to a popular Bengali actress, what will happen to normal BJP workers?
These days it is not even possible to hold BJP joining ceremonies within West Bengal. The risk and threats are so high from TMC goons! #TMCIntolerance Click To Tweet

West Bengal unit head Dilip Ghosh said while these actors were joining BJP that the situation in the state is such, that it is not possible to even have BJP joining ceremonies within the state. And, the threat on people joining the party is a lot. It is risky in West Bengal to join BJP. So he gave credit to their courage for doing that.
