TMC-LF hooch politics reaches a crescendo

The CPI(M) was quick to hit back. The leader of the opposition Surya Kanta Mishra strongly rebutted the Trinamool  minister’s charge.

Alleging that CPI (M) was the main culprit behind the tragedy, the state minister said:“In a much planned way the local CPI (M) leaders have mixed different chemicals with the local spirit (Cholai) and that has caued the death of so many people”.

“CPI (M) was in a very uneasy position after the AMRI incident because the nexus between the AMRI bigwigs and Alimuddin Street (CPI(M) state headquaters) was coming to fore,” a top Trinamool leader said.

“To cover the AMRI episode and divert the attention of the people and the administration the CPM leadership has deliberately mixed the poison in the local spirit causing death to so many people,” the TMC leader added. Infact, the Trinamool leaders’ reaction came after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee apparently held the main opposition party CPI(M) responsible for the tragedy.        

Snubbing CPI (M)’s veteran leader Abdul Rezzak Mollah, Banerjee told in the Assembly: “Take information Badsah Khokon (one of the main culprit behind the tragedy) belongs to which party? I have not told that. If there is political affiliation for a long time then police has some problems”.

The CPI (M) leadership, however, flayed Trinamool for making the allegation. Former health minister and leader of opposition Surya Kanta Mishra said: “Partho Babu is ill and so I don’t want to make any comment on his remarks but when the chief minister is telling something then we will have to take note of it, seriously”.

 “I throw an open challenge. Let the police arrest the main culprit and we will prove that he belongs to Trinamool Congress and not us,” Mishra said. “I have evidence that he is seen with Trinamool Congress central minister and the district leadership,” Mishra added.
