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.
