Kolkata, July 17: The “didi” fascism in TMC is not working well anymore. This Presidential Poll has openly shown the wide crack in the internal politics of TMC. TMC leader Mamata Banerjee extended her support to oppositional candidate Meira Kumar. But from the Tripura lobby of the party, few MLAs voted for National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidate Ram Nath Kovind.
After casting vote in Presidential Election, she said "We voted for Meira Kumar to register our protest against "present atrocities" in the country." It's vote against injustice. For sake of country, we urge everyone to not support BJP & stand beside people. “, she said.
But despite her call, her own party leaders rejected to back Meira Kumar. In Tripura, CPIN is the ruling party. An MLA Ashish Saha said people of Tripura are suffering since last 26 years. Hence they can’t support Mamata’s decision to back CPIM, Congress in the Presidential election.
In a talk to media, she irrelevantly blamed BJP for problems in Bengal. “Centre has ruined relationship with Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh. We are the worst sufferers. Where is NIA?intelligence agencies?” she questioned center.
Regarding the issue of Muslim infiltration, she denied accepting any claim. She asked why the borders are being kept open. She questioned about SSB, IB, RAW’s role in the border security. She said people belonging to the Jamaat are being allowed inside.
Sarada, Narada scam has badly devastated TMC’s political role in the state. Defending her party, she said, “Demonetisation and GST biggest scams. We will not bow down our head, we will be happy to go to jail.”
