Bengal Assembly Election 2021: “Earlier, on March 21, I will send my father to Amit Shah’s rally,” Suvendu Adhikari said in a public meeting.
New Delhi:BJP candidate Suvendu Adhikari, from the hot seat of Nandigram in West Bengal, announced on Wednesday that his father Sisir Adhikari, who is a Trinamool MP, will be present in the tribal family’s home district Kanthi at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally on March 24. East Midnapore.
“Before this, on March 21, I will send my father to Amit Shah’s rally,” Suvendu Adhikari said in a public meeting.
Adikari Senior has been associated with the Trinamool Congress since the beginning. But ever since his son switched sides, he has been unclear about his support for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Today he ended up in a resentment in which he said that he did not know whether he was in the Trinamool or not.
“Who said I am in Trinamool? Does Trinamool say so? Ever since Suvendu left the party, they have been abusing my family, my ancestors. A gentleman is coming from Kolkata and calling Suvendu as Mir Jafar, a traitor.” Have been. I have not. ” I know if I am in Trinamool now, ”Mr. Adhikari said in Kanthi on Wednesday as he left his home for another shot of the coronovirus vaccine. He is 80’s.
On Mamta Banerjee, Mr. Adhikari was adamant. “Ever since Suvendu left the party, he has come here to oust him. What he is doing here … is an embarrassment, for the district, for the people of Nandigram,” She said.
“A few days ago, she said he had been attacked. Some people protested and she said no, the car door hit me. What kind of injury did he get? What kind of doctor are they? A little push and He planted. In his plaster and wheelchair? “SHe said.
Someone told me that the same thing happened in a movie the other day. so what to do. We are sitting and watching cinema, ”said Sisir Adhikari.
Asked if he would attend PM Modi’s rally, he said, “If there is an opportunity, I will definitely go to the Prime Minister’s rally. I have no problem with that.”
Now, when he has got Kovid vaccinated, Mr. Adhikari said that he was ready to go out and campaign for his son if Suvendu asked him.
What Trinamool has said is unavoidable. Trinamool MP Soumya Roy said, “Sisir Adhikari is 80 years old. At this age he could retain some dignity and not become ‘Dal Badlu’. His distance from the party was unavoidable.
Mr. Adhikari’s remarks have triggered speculation that he may join the BJP. His youngest son Soumendu has already done so. Soumendu, a member of the Trinamool, was removed from the post of president of the Kanthi Municipal Board earlier this year.
But another official son, Dibyendu, who is also a Trinamool MP, has not joined the BJP yet.
Now, the loyalty of the entire family has been questioned. The Adhikari family has a traditional hold in East Midnapore district due to its roots there and history of participation in the freedom struggle. Political observers say that if the whole family changes political loyalty, it is not to say what effect Trinamool’s fortunes will have on the district.
