Kolkata: Pradesh Congress president Somen Mitra lashed out at MP Mausam Benzir Noor
for joining the TMC party. He clearly said that by leaving Congress, she will never be able to win.
After 2011, many Congress MLAs enlisted their names in the TMC party. But there was no MP in that list. Mausam is the first MP to enlist her name in the TMC party.
Mausam claims herself to be the daughter of a Congress family. Her relative Abu Hossain Khan Chowdhury is Malda south’s MP. Gani Khan Chowdhury belonged to this family and was very famous.
On Tuesday, Somen Mitra presided over a press conferene over Mausam’s change of political party. He said that Mausam’s absence will not have any effect. But if anyone from deceased Gani Khan Chaudhury’s family leaves party, then it hurts, said Mitra.
Mitra said that by this measure, she actually gave power to BJP. But it will not help as that constituency will be won by Congress candidate, believes Mitra.
