Amdanga: Political mercury was riding on ISF MLA Naushad Siddiqui’s comments on Sunday. Trinamool All India General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee expressed his intention to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls from Diamond Harbor Lok Sabha constituency. Not only that, he warned of making the current MP a former MP. Trinamool did not stop after Naushad’s comment. Rafiqur Rahman, MLA of North 24 Parganas Amdanga, claims that this leader of Indian Secular Front wants to be a candidate from there to win Muslim votes. The Trinamool MLA also claimed that he is receiving compensation from the BJP for his work.
It goes without saying that Diamond Harbor is the focus of the opposition in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Last Saturday, from a public meeting in East Medinipur, BJP leader and leader of the opposition in the assembly, Shubhendu Adhikari warned, “I will defeat Abhishek in Diamond Harbour. Stand up and lose. BJP will win. I say again, I will lose my nephew, I will lose, I will lose.” The very next day, Naushad expressed his desire to stand from that center. Said, “I will make the present MP of Diamond Harbor a former MP. I will contest the Lok Sabha polls from Diamond Harbor if the party approves it.” Then the water became cloudy! Although some of the political circles tried to divide the matter into two-by-two, but some of the political circles tried to divide the matter into two-by-four, but no one opened their mouths face-to-face.
However, in a public meeting, the Trinamool MLA opened up about the ISF-BJP tussle. He clearly said, “If Naushad Siddiqui is a candidate in the Diamond Harbor Lok Sabha, the security will be seized.” Allegedly said, “He is a broker of BJP. BJP is trying to divide the Muslim vote with Masohara.” However, the BJP leadership is unwilling to accept this complaint of the Trinamool. BJP MP Dilip Ghosh said, “I cannot say what he will do. He feels that he will fight Abhishek. can do BJP will fight with its organization, workers. It is not in our hands who will be one or two in the fight against us. We are united and we will fight.”
