Trinamul Leaders Keep Soiling Each Other
Malda, Dec 4, 2012: Trinamul Congress leaders are still desperately looking for a face saving solution after a clash was bared between two groups of the ruling party on 2 December night in front of the residence of social welfare minister and district Trinamul president Sabitri Mitra. While one faction claimed that police complaints would be withdrawn, the other faction turned the the possibility of withdrawing complaints so easily.
Three complaints were lodged at English Bazaar police station on 2 December by two factions of Trinamul supporters against each other. Secretary of district Trinamul Congress Kalyan Moulik alias Chhoton in his complaint claimed that he and another Trinamul supporter Subrata Das were attacked and mercilessly beaten by a group of goons led by Anirban Bhaduri, the brother of district Youth Trinamul Congress (TMYC) president Amlan Bhaduri. Entire incident took place in presence of the minister’s husband Kamal Ghosh, according to Moulik. Das too lodged a separate written complaint.
Bhaduri on the other hand claimed that Moulick and Das let loose reign of terror in the locality and indulged in extortion. “They recently tried to occupy a club. Recently their activities enraged the people. When they were asked to abstain from such illegal activities in the name of the ruling party, they abused some of the senior citizens and the public at the fit of anger attacked and assaulted them,” Bhaduri said.
Moulik was admitted to a nursing home yesterday but it was too termed as an act to wash eyes of people by his opponent faction. They too lodged a complaint against Moulik and his associates.
Bhaduri today said, “I went to see Chhoton in nursing home yesterday and slammed him for his drama. It was decided that all complaints would be withdrawn.”
Today Moulik, after being released from nursing home, said, “Amlan and his brother came to me yesterday in nursing home and apologized for their behavior. But we shall not withdraw complaints so easily. We will talk to people and then only decide.”
