One Day After ‘Patch’ Meeting, Rebel TMC Hints He’s Dating | India News


CALCUTTA: Veteran Congressional rebel Trinamool Suvendu Adhikari, a crucial cog in the wheel of the Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee as she runs for a third term in office, told her party on Wednesday that it had become “difficult to work together.” The suggestion that he might want to leave came just a day after conciliatory meetings with senior party officials including MPs Abhishek Banerjee, Saugata Roy and Sudip Bandyopadhyay, and strategist Prashant Kishor.
The trigger for Adhikari seemingly biting the bullet was his disgust that the party stepped forward and announced that he would remain in their fold even before his differences with the leadership were “resolved in a meaningful way,” the sources said.
The sudden turn of events on Wednesday has overshadowed the possibility of Adhikari being present at Mamata’s December 7 Midnapore meeting, to which he has been invited.
“There has been no solution to the points I raised. Things are being imposed on me before a solution is reached, ”read Adhikari’s message to Roy. Adhikari accused TMC of trying to force the issue.
“What I said on Tuesday was true. Now, it’s your decision if you decide to change your mind, ”Roy said.
