Rift in Ruling Alliance Yawning ? Pradip Bhattachaya Attacks Trinamul
MALDA, 14 NOV: The state Congress president Mr Pradip Bhattacharya echoed Malda Congress while alleging ally the Trinamul Congress for resorting attack on Congress workers throughout the state. On his way to Raigunj, Mr Bhattacharya today talked to media here. He said, “Not only in Malda but throughout the state Congress workers are subjected to attack. It is most unfortunate that the CPI-M goons had infiltrated to the Trinamul to unleash attack on Congress workers.” He referred to the attack on Baishnabnagar Congress MLA Mr Isha Khan Choudhury at Kaliachak by some miscreants that took place on the day before yesterday. The south Malda Congress MP Mr Abu Hasem Khan Choudhury (Dalu), father of Mr Isha Khan Choudhury described the attack as a ploy of CPI-M goons who had recently joined TMC.
Yesterday the district Congress committee (DCC) even held rallies protesting the attack where among others MP Mousam Noor, The minister of state (MOS) of the labour department Mrs Sabina Yeasmin joined the bandwagon of attacking the Trinamul for the attack on their supporters.
Mr Bhattacharya today said, “Daluda and Mausam have rightly said. We deeply condemn the attack on Isha Khan Choudhury. I’ve sought the report in this regard from District Congress. Then I’ll take up the issue with state leadership.”
However, the state social welfare minister and district Trinamul president Mrs Sabitra Mitra rubbishing the allegations of the Congress leaders said, “Mr Pradip Bhattacharya does not know the reality of Malda. We hardly have any organization where the Congress MLA was attacked. He fell amidst the battle between two groups of antisocial and the Congress leaders are improvising stories about it.”
