Adhir's statement against Mamta

Adhir got his way when the Congress did not form an alliance with the Trinamool Congress for the Lok Sabha elections in the state. The party decided to contest the elections with the Left parties in the state instead of Mamata's party. State Congress chief Adhir Ranjan is a five-time Lok Sabha MP from Baharampur. He often puts the national leadership of the party in an embarrassing situation with his anger against Mamata Banerjee. Only last week Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary had said that Mamata Banerjee cannot be trusted. She (Mamata) can go with Bharatiya Janata Party. Adhir said this when TMC is with Bharat Alliance.

TMC's displeasure with Congress high command

The special thing is that Congress has ignored most of the sharp attacks of Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary. This has disappointed Trinamool leaders a lot. TMC keeps accusing the Congress central leadership of doing nothing to control its state leader. However, Kharge had also reprimanded Adhir on Mamata's statement about joining BJP. But the 'Lakshman Rekha' was violated when some leaders and workers of the state Congress targeted Mallikarjun Kharge. They blackened his poster in front of the party's state headquarters with ink. The reason for this was Kharge's stern rebuke to Adhir after the state Congress chief questioned Mamata's loyalty to the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.

Kharge took swift action this time

Mamata had initially said that if she came to power, she would support the Indian National Development Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) from outside. However, he later said that he is part of the anti-BJP alliance at the national level and together they will form the next government at the Centre. Kharge acted swiftly this time and reprimanded Adhir last Saturday. Kharge said that Mamata Banerjee is with the alliance. She (Mamata) has recently said that she will join the government. Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary will not take any decision. The decision will be taken by me and the high command and those who do not agree will walk out. The Congress chief also said Choudhary was no one to decide whether Banerjee would be a part of the India Bloc if the anti-BJP alliance came to power.
Who is he? I am a soldier of the party… Mallikarjun Kharge and Adhir Ranjan Choudhary clashed over Mamata Banerjee.

No change in Adhir's attitude

However, despite Kharge's strong comments, Adhir did not compromise his stand against Mamata. He said that I cannot speak in favor of someone who wants to destroy me and our party politically in Bengal. This is the fight of every Congress worker. Responding to Kharge's anger, Adhir said that I do not want the state Congress to be used for her (Banerjee's) personal agenda. Meanwhile, taking serious note of the 'anti-party activities' in the state, the Congress has sought a report on the acts of indiscipline. General Secretary (Organization) KC Venugopal issued a strong statement on Monday. He said that we are taking such serious anti-party activities very seriously. The Indian National Congress will not tolerate such public display of insubordination and indiscipline. The General Secretary in-charge of West Bengal has been directed to immediately submit a factual report of these acts.

Now exactly two days later, Kharge has called Adhir Ranjan a fighting soldier of Congress. Kharge said about Chaudhary that he is our fighting soldier. The Congress president was asked whether the Congress was making the same mistake with Chaudhary that it had made in 1998 with Mamata, who had left the party to form her own party in protest against the Left's 'atrocities' on party workers in Bengal. Had given. On this question, Kharge said that I do not want to speak about any one person. Chaudhary is a fighting soldier of the Congress Party and our leader in West Bengal. Kharge said that some TMC leaders are trying to raise the issue of Congress's alliance with the Left but it will not work. Kharge said that he is trying to present it in a different way. But this will not happen because the Congress party is strong and understands each other. What has happened in West Bengal is that the Congress high command has decided to form an alliance with the Left parties and we are moving ahead with that. In the state, TMC is contesting the Lok Sabha elections alone while Congress and Left parties are contesting the elections together. Earlier, according to Congress sources, Chaudhary, who lives in his hometown Baharampur in Murshidabad district, had expressed his displeasure over this incident. He asked the party workers to lodge a complaint with the police in this regard. The West Bengal Congress, in its complaint to the state police, said a group of unidentified miscreants yesterday blackened the pictures of Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on several banners across the state, including the one in front of the gate of the state Congress headquarters. Was. , Vidhan Bhavan. Defaced with ink.

Adhir's maternal love after 26 years

In 1998, Mamata Banerjee left the Congress to form her own party in protest against the grand old party's inaction against leftist 'atrocities' on party cadres in Bengal. After almost 26 years, Adhir is also singing the same tune. The only difference is that the government is of Mamata Banerjee and the Left is now with Congress. Now the question is whether the oldest party will change its stand towards Mamata? Well, it will probably depend on the results of the Lok Sabha elections on June 4. Till then, he is probably happy to use his 'fighter soldiers' to keep the pressure on Mamata.
