Suvendu Adhikari joined BJP in presence of the Union Home Minister. Suvendu is now BJP’s member, held a saffron flag in presence of Amit Shah.
Home Minister Amit Shah is on a two-day visit to Bengal from today. During this time he has reached Medinipur on the first day of his tour.
Suvendu Adhikari, who recently resigned from TMC, also present on the dais. Suvendu Adhikari joined BJP in presence of Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah.
Recently, Suvendu Adhikari resigned from Trinamool Congress. Amit Shah and Suvendu Adhikari greeted the people at a rally organized at the college ground in Paschim Medinipur.
Finally, Suvendu Adhikari, a strongman and former minister who resigned from the Trinamool Congress, joined the BJP on Saturday, putting an end to all political speculation.
He held the saffron flag in Medinipur, Bengal, in the presence of Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah. Shah welcomed him to the party.
Significantly, Suvendu has been the poster boy of the Nandigram movement. This Nandigram movement had an important role in Mamata Banerjee’s occupation of Bengal in 2011.
Significantly, Suvendu, an MLA from Nandigram in the former Medinipur district, resigned from the state cabinet on November 27 last month.
After this, he resigned as MLA on Wednesday this week. The next day on Thursday, he resigned from the primary membership of the TMC and completely broke the ties with the party.
Suvendu’s joining the BJP is a big setback for the Trinamool Congress. Suvendu was considered by Trinamool Congress to be the largest mass leader after Mamata Banerjee.
Suvendu’s father and brother are also MPs. The Adhikari family has considerable influence in the former Medinipur and the surrounding six districts.
At least 60 to 65 assembly seats in that area are dominated by Adhikari Parivar.
