Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], October 20 (ANI): BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari on Tuesday questioned former Union minister Babul Supriyo over his “deal” with West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee.
“I don’t think it is important to comment on what he said. But he should tell the public about his deal with ‘bua aur bhatija’ (West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee) only then I can reply. Will give their questions,” the BJP leader said.
This comes at a time when Supriyo, who formally resigned as Member of Parliament (MP) yesterday, asked Suvendu Adhikari’s father and brother to resign from their respective Lok Sabha seats.
Former Union minister Babul Supriyo on Tuesday formally submitted his resignation as a BJP MP from the House to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, a month after he quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Commenting on BJP’s Suvendu Adhikari, Supriyo had said, “Suvendu Adhikari was an integral part of TMC a few months back. Outside politics he has been a friend, he obviously has to talk very harshly about me politically. But he should advise his father. And brother should resign from MP seats as they are no longer part of TMC.”
Suvendu Adhikari had joined the BJP in December 2020, ahead of the assembly elections in the state. His father Shishir Adhikari had joined the BJP in March this year.
Meanwhile, after a reshuffle in the Union Cabinet, Supriyo had resigned as Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change in August. In a Facebook post, he said there was a difference of opinion between him and the leaders of the West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and that differences between senior leaders were “harming the party”.
Later on 18 September, the former BJP leader, who had announced that he was quitting politics and would also resign as an MP, joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and claimed that he would be the one to serve Bengal. Coming back for great opportunity. (ANI)
