Minorities shifting away from TMC: Suvendu Adhikari
Accusing the Mamata Banerjee government of “misleading the minorities” in the state over issues like the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Leader of Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari Saturday stated that the minorities were “gradually drifting away” from the ruling TMC.
Speaking at a public meeting organised by the BJP’s minority cell in Kolkata, the BJP MLA from Nandigram said, “In 2021, the minorities supported the TMC. However, since last few elections they have started to move away from the TMC. They may also not be in support of the BJP at the moment but they have drifted away from the TMC. After learning this, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee used two weapons – one is to incite violence and indulge in divisive politics and the other is to mislead them over the NRC,” said Adhikari.
He claimed that the TMC government has ushered in dynasty politics, corruption and politics of appeasement in the state.
Reacting to the allegations, senior TMC leader and state Minister Firhad Hakim said, “Be it minority or majority, everyone has been with the TMC .
They will continue to be with us in future no matter what the Opposition says against us.”
