Congress State President Adhir Chowdhury Labels West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee “Opportunist” in Fresh Attack

In a recent verbal assault on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, State Congress President and MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury labeled her an “opportunist,” asserting that the Congress party is well-equipped to contest elections independently.

Accusing Mamata Banerjee of relying on Congress’ mercy to secure power in the 2011 elections, Adhir Chowdhury emphasized that the upcoming elections would not be fought on her terms. He highlighted Congress’ recent victories over the BJP and TMC in the seats Banerjee is vacating, reiterating the party’s ability to navigate electoral challenges.

During a press conference, Chowdhury reiterated his earlier assertive stance, expressing indifference to whoever contests the Lok Sabha Election in West Bengal, emphasizing that the Congress party knows how to fight and win.

Responding to TMC State General Secretary Kunal Ghosh’s statement on seat sharing, where TMC declared its intention to contest on all 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi downplayed the tensions. Gandhi mentioned ongoing seat-sharing negotiations and emphasized Mamata Banerjee’s proximity to him and the party. He suggested that such remarks from leaders would not disrupt the negotiation process.

While addressing the media during his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Gandhi invited other political parties to join the yatra, expressing a desire for collaboration. The Congress aims to finalize the seat-sharing pact before the yatra reaches Uttar Pradesh.
