At the rally, Suvendu Adhikari is silent on TMC | India News


MAHISADAL: In his first demonstration since resigning from Mamata Banerjee’s cabinet two days ago, TMC rebel veteran Suvendu Adhikari on Sunday refrained from mentioning the party, focusing instead on presenting himself as “a servant of the people.” that I would continue working and “fulfilling my commitments to them.”
Adhikari was at Mahisadal in East Midnapore one day when TMC ministers Rajiv Banerjee, Sujit Bose and Bratya Basu addressed the party’s programs in Haldia and Contai, both on the grounds of their estranged colleague’s family.
Speaking briefly, Adhikari said, “People should have the last word. The country’s Constitution emphasizes that it is “for the people, of the people and by the people.” Every arrangement under it must put people first. It is the people who will have the last word. It is their overwhelming support in such large amounts that will help me continue to work for them. ”
The rebel leader did not answer questions. Trinamool officials, a constant presence at their previous “apolitical” meetings, were conspicuous by their absence from Mahisadal.
Trinamool decided to hold party meetings in East Midnapore in an attempt to maintain its base of support and eliminate confusion in the party ranks after the Adhikari family kept an eerie silence about their political future. The party’s preparatory meetings were also intended for Prime Minister Mamata Banerjee’s public meeting in West Midnapore on December 7.
Sources close to Suvendu indicated that he could go to Nandigram on Monday to attend a religious program. It has several non-political programs scheduled through mid-December.
In Contai, Minister Basu said: “He (Adhikari) is still in the party … Party leaders can leave the party, but a party is made by its workers.” In Haldia, PWD Minister Bose did not mention Adhikari, and decided to limit himself to targeting BJP “for fueling mistrust and half-truths among the people.”
At Muchisah in South 24-Parganas, MP Abhishek Banerjee challenged the BJP to “name” him while presenting the charges. On the “dissidents” in the party, Banerjee warned that Trinamool was like his “mother” and no party worker would “forgive the betrayal of the mother.”
