Krishnanagar: The BJP on Sunday asked the CPM to extend support to the saffron party to de-fragment the Opposition in Bengal and unite against the common enemy, the Trinamool Congress.
The call by BJP leader Mukul Roy was rejected outright by Alimuddin Street which said the BJP and Trinamool are both sides of the same coin.
“Leave your flags behind and come join our cause. It hardly matters whom you support. What matters is whom we all oppose,” said Roy.
The former de facto number two in Trinamool was speaking to the media after Nadia Trinamool leader Sunil Pal joined the BJP.
