Trinamool Congress’s Abhishek Banerjee termed BJP’s Shubhendu Adhikari as the ‘RAC’ leader of the opposition.
Banerjee said that the victory of the BJP leader has been legally challenged in the courts.
If there is a decision against him from the court, then his defeat in the next election is certain.
Contai (West Bengal). Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday mocked BJP’s Shubhendu Adhikari, calling him the leader of the ‘Reservation Against Cancellation’ (RAC) opposition. Banerjee said that the BJP leader’s victory was legally challenged in the courts and if the court decides against her, she is bound to face a humiliating defeat in the next elections. Abhishek Banerjee alleged that Shubhendu Adhikari had won the assembly elections against Mamata Banerjee in 2021 by resorting to unfair means. He claimed that in the new elections, the local people will defeat Shubhendu Adhikari, who joined BJP from TMC, giving a befitting reply.
Abhishek Banerjee said that he has claimed to defeat the CM. They call him compartmental CM. Before saying this to Mamta Banerjee, she should think that she herself is the leader of the RAC opposition. He is the only MLA in India whose ‘victory’ is still under scrutiny. Abhishek Banerjee addressed a rally of the party before the Panchayat elections here. Panchayat elections are likely to be held early next year. This rally was organized in the grounds of Prabhat Kumar College, which is just a few meters away from Shubhendu Adhikari’s residence ‘Shantikunj’.
At the rally, Abhishek Banerjee said that ‘you did ‘load shedding’ (power black-out) to win the Nandigram election (manipulating votes)… The media had broadcast that Mamta Banerjee had won the election. Fresh elections will be held in Nandigram and the people here will give a befitting reply. Suvendu Adhikari had won the Nandigram seat by a narrow margin over his rival Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in a tough fight last year. About which TMC claimed that its result was ‘messed’ by manipulation. Earlier, the BJP had moved the Calcutta High Court to oppose holding a rally near the officer’s house in Contai. But the court had ruled that in a democracy anyone is allowed to organize a rally. It issued directions to ensure that all rules were followed.

While Abhishek Banerjee launched ‘Ek Dak Abhishek’ on Saturday to listen to the grievances of the people of Purba Medinipur district. In a rally organized at Prabhatkumar College near Shantikunj, Adhikari’s house, Abhishek Banerjee has announced that the people of East Medinipur can call him for any of their problems. He said that ‘I am giving a number. You can contact me directly daily from 9 am to 6 pm. Whoever has something to say, call me directly. Incidentally, the Diamond Harbor MP from TMC had introduced this system in his constituency last June.
