- Mamta Banerjee calls emergency meeting after TMC leader Suvendu Adhikari leaves the party
- A stampede of leaders from the party continues, it can be discussed in the emergency meeting
- However, party sources have said that this is not an emergency meeting but a routine meeting.
After the rebellion of the big leaders in the ruling Trinamool Congress of West Bengal, the party’s concern has started increasing. This can be gauged from the fact that party chief and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has called an emergency meeting of TMC on Friday. Mamta called the meeting a day after the party’s senior leader Suvendu Adhikari resigned in a dramatic manner. The official is said to be joining the BJP on Saturday.
However, TMC sources say that this is not an emergency meeting, but is only a part of the party’s regular meetings. He said that every Friday the party president meets TMC leaders in batches.
Stampede at tmc
Significantly, the assembly elections are going to be held in Bengal next year. Earlier, there was a stampede within the ruling Trinamool Congress. The rebellion of leaders from the top to the lowest levels in the party has put TMC’s top leadership in worry. Suvendu Adhikari, considered close enough to Mamata Banerjee, resigned on Thursday. He told that within two hours of resigning, he went to the house of another party MP.
The officer had gone to TMC MP Sunil Mandal’s house to attend the condolence meeting, but it is also considered as a mini-meeting of the disgruntled leaders of the party. Before the officer, TMC MLA and former Asansol Mayor Jitendra Tiwari also made serious allegations against the state government. He had written a letter to the minister saying that the state government had rejected the funds the city received from the center from the center for political reasons, which is not justice with Asansol.
