‘TMC should join Congress to defeat BJP in West Bengal’: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury [Video]

‘TMC should join Congress to defeat BJP in West Bengal’: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury

The Congress proposed that the TMC should merge with it instead to put up a united fight against the BJP. The BJP, which has emerged as a potent force in the state, said the TMC's suggestion amounted to admission that it was not in a position to take on the saffron party on its own in the assembly polls in West Bengal due in April-May. "If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should rally behind Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party," senior TMC MP Sougata Roy said. Reacting to the TMC's proposal, state Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the West Bengal's ruling party for the growth of the BJP in the state. "We are not interested in aligning with the TMC. Why is the TMC now interested in an alliance with us after poaching our MLAs over the last 10 years. If Mamata Banerjee is in keen on fighting the BJP, then she should join the Congress as it is the only pan-India platform to fight against communalism," he said.

बंगालः अधीर रंजन चौधरी का ममता को सुझाव-'कांग्रे

पश्चिम बंगाल में तेजी से मजबूत हो रही भारतीय जनता पार्टी (भाजपा) के रथ को रोकने के लिए हाल ही में तृणमूल कांग्रेस के वरिष्ठ नेता सौगत राय ने कांग्रेस और सीपीएम को टीएमसी के साथ मिलकर चुनाव लड़ने की अपील की था। उनके इस बयान पर कांग्रेस ने उन्हें अपनी पार्टी को मर्ज करने की नसीहत दे डाली। इस बीच लोकसभा में कांग्रेस संसदीय दल के नेता अधीररंजन चौधरी ने कहा है कि ममता बनर्जी समझ रही हैं कि बंगाल में BJP को रोकने के लिए उनके पास कोई चारा नहीं है। BJP के खिलाफ लड़ने के लिए ममता बनर्जी की नहीं बल्कि कांग्रेस की अगुवाई में आना आवश्यक है।

Mamata Banerjee should join hands with Congress to stop BJP in WB: Adhir Chowdhury

Congress leader Adhir Chowdhury on January 15 offered Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee to join his party to stop Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form the government in the state in upcoming WB assembly elections. He said, "They felt it'll be difficult for them to survive without Congress. They came to power with Congress' help but then left no stone unturned to finish Congress. They weakened secular parties like Congress and Left in WB, which made a communal party like BJP rise." "She (Mamata Banerjee) should come to Congress as there's no option other than Congress to stop BJP. If they can feel this, they should join forces under Congress' leadership. Congress had kept secularism intact for 100 years in this nation by facing BJP and its ancestors," he added. Adhir statement comes after Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Saugata Roy asked Left and the Congress to support CM Banerjee in her fight against BJP if they are "genuinely" anti-BJP.
