Behrampore: In a setback to Trinamool day after mega rally at Brigade Parade Ground, thousand of TMC supporters and cadres on Sunday have shifted to Congress in Behrampore. With this, Congress has strengthened its political domain in Murshidabad.
In a programme at Murshidabad district party office earlier this day, groups of TMCP students and members, former president of Raninagar Panchayat No 2, head of the same Panchayat, former head of Malibari panchayat and other members have joined Congress on Sunday with due presence of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.
Addressing the people, Adir Ranjan Chowdhury, attacking ruling party TMC and its mega rally said that, “As if Mamata became Prime Minister after the rally at Brigade Parade Ground. We Would not let it happen. People were having picnic for the last four days in the name of TMC’s mega rally in Kolkata.”
Alleging TMC, Chowdhuey said, the TMC people have distributed money and alcohol as bribe to the village people. Giving account of previous Rally at Brigade, he said that Mamata held rally before at the same place where unprivileged people gave their presence, then she was a leader of people, now a dictator. Now the days has cane where she is bribing people for fill the ground.”
Talking about the fresh people in the party, the former West Bengal Congress president said that ‘reverse swing in the game has started which will prevail in several districts. Trinamool will be bankrupted before Lok Sabha election. Common People will leave Trinamool as the party could not keep its promises. Few people will remain left in TMC as they are the heads of all. Murshidabad will be a threat to Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee in Lok Sabha election.”
The back to back incident of leaving Trinamool has became a worry to the district invigilator of TMC Suvendu Adhikari. He promised to gain Murshidabad in his term of supervision before Lok Sabha election.
Not only the TMC, Muslim workers from the BJP and CPI(M) too joined the Congress on Hanuary 3 taking the total number of joinees to the grand old party to 2,500.
This is significant as the Muslim community in West Bengal has more than 27 per cent dedicated vote share. Malda, Murshidabad, and North Dinajpur districts in West Bengal have Muslim majority votes.
