On comparing Dilip Ghosh's signature in the viral letter and original letter, we found there is a difference in the signature.


The Office of Dilip Ghosh also tweeted about the viral letter on March 30 and said that he did not write it. It tweeted, "This is a fake letter being circulated on the name of Shri @DilipGhoshBJP. The @BJP4Bengal has made a complaint to the @ECISVEEP and will lodge a police complaint to take criminal action against those sharing this forged letter."

The Logical Indian also contacted the BJP West Bengal office, who confirmed that Dilip Ghosh did not write the letter.
