West Bengal minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Suvendu Adhikari on Tuesday challenged his party saying they may meet “on the battlefield”. Adhikari mentioned journalists and political observers had been ready for him to announce his political programme. “They want to hear me talk about the roadblocks I am facing and the path I am going to take. I will not announce my political programme from this sacred platform. This is not the place. I will speak from a political platform,” Adhikari mentioned at a rally.

Adhikari’s followers had organised the rally to pay tributes to TMC employees and villagers, who died throughout the two-yr-lengthy agitation in opposition to the erstwhile Left Front authorities’s try to accumulate land for a chemical hub.

Adhikari introduced from immediately all tributes to these killed throughout the agitation might be held below the banner of Bhumi Uchhed Protirodh Committee below which the Nandigram land motion was organised.

Adhikari referred to TMC’s two hurriedly organised counter rallies at Nandigram and requested: “Where were you during these 13 years?” He added he was not new there. “A known Brahmin does not need the sacred thread to establish his identity,” he mentioned, quoting a well-liked Bengali proverb.

Benerjee additionally paid tribute to these killed in the agitation. In a tweet, she mentioned, “Today is Nandigram Dibas – the 13th anniversary of the barbaric massacre in the name of new dawn. My homage to all those who have lost their lives due to political violence across the world. Peace must always win.”

TMC leaders mentioned Adhikari is sad with Banerjee’s nephew, Abhishek Banerjee, and election strategist Prashant Kishor. “Suvendu wants the party to field candidates of his choice in 65 assembly seats spread across several districts. This is unacceptable to the leadership. We are aware that he was approached by the BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party]. There is nothing one can do if he is determined to leave. But we have information that he is not yet ready to join the saffron camp,” a TMC chief mentioned on situation of anonymity.
