Kolkata: The sudden death of Bollywood playback singer KK has once again started a political row between the BJP and Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government. Dilip Ghosh, the national vice president of the BJP, triggered his gun on Mamata’s government. He blamed the fact that the Kolkata administration failed to arrange the concert in a proper manner.
The noted singer felt uneasiness after returning to Kolkata’s Grand Hotel following the show. During the show, he complained about the heat. The auditorium was jam packed as the crowd wanted to catch a glimpse of their beloved singer.
The seating capacity in the auditorium was about 2,500–3,000, but overall attendance was almost double.
During the concert, KK was complaining about the heat in the auditorium. He was seen wiping his face with a towel due to sweat and pointed towards the function of the air conditioner in the hall.
Dilip Ghosh, the Bengal BJP leader, blamed the government to some extent for the singer’s death. The government failed to arrange the concert programme in a proper way. “Mismanagement creates this kind of condition when a celebrity visits. The administration should take the responsibility and make full arrangements for the comfort of a celebrity like KK.
The West Bengal government is set to pay homage to the noted singer. The state government is planning to give a gun salute to KK at Kolkata airport before his body is flown out of the city.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said: “If the weather is fine, I will travel to Kolkata by air.”
