Now, Another Mamata Cabinet Minister Speaks Out Against TMC After Suvendu Adhikari
Rajib Banerjee spoke about the corruption by the West Bengal government, while adding that the dishonest and insincere members who cajole the high command are the ones who are promoted to the top ranks
With just a few months to the West Bengal legislative elections, there is fresh trouble brewing within the Mamata Banerjee government. After Suvendu Adhikari, a key minister in the state’s cabinet resigned citing irreconcilable differences with the party, now Bengal Forest Affairs Minister Rajib Banerjee has spoken against the TMC. While addressing a rally yesterday, Banerjee said that the rampant corruption by the ruling administration in the region saddened him. He further said that those who are dishonest and insincere are promoted to the top due to their ability to butter up the high ranks.
The TMC however seems to be in denial about the in-party rebellion. Spokesperson Partha Chatterjee responded on the controversy, stating that first the opposition was talking about Adhikari and now its fixated-on Banerjee. He also said that Banerjee remains a member of the Mamata-party and small issues are common and can be resolved within any political outfit.
Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that has its eyes set on the state in the coming polls is rejoicing the TMC slugfest. According to the party’s national secretary, Kailash Vijayvargia, Bengal citizens are tired of the current government and are looking forward to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership.
The saffron party is confident of a great show in the 2021 elections after it won 18 seats with a gigantic 40.6% vote share in WB’s 2019 Lok Sabha elections, a figure which is four times the vote share and six times the number of seats compared to its 2016 Vidhan Sabha performance.
