Adhir questions TMC silence over Presidents rule in Ukhand

first_imgKolkata, Mar 29 (PTI) Questioning West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjees silence over the Presidents rule in Uttarakhand, state Congress president Adhir Chowdhury today said it only indicated TMCs desperation to appease Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP at the Centre.”When the entire country is speaking out against the Centres arbitrary decision to topple a democratically-elected government and impose Presidents rule, the TMC has maintained a stoic silence. This only proves political match fixing between the two,” Chowdhury told a press conference.He said the TMC was so “desperate” to save its back from corruption scandals that it chose to keep silent.”It was proved in the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha too. In the Rajya Sabha, Narada sting issue was not sent to the ethics committee. In the Lok Sabha the issue was sent to the ethics committee, but there has been no progress over it,” Chowdhury pointed out.He asserted that his partys alliance with the CPI-M was growing at a rapid pace and “it will grow into a cyclonic storm”.Chowdhury said that if the alliance came to power, the government would move on the basis of the common minimum programme.While talking about two Kolkata police personnel trying to bribe BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha, Chowdhury said, “I have a feeling that it is a ploy by both the TMC and the BJP to help the BJP gain some sympathy votes which in turn will help the TMC in the polls.” PTI PNT MD IKAadvertisementlast_img read more
