All India general secretary of Trinamool Congress Subrata Bakshi and state transport minister Suvendu Adhikari claimed that chief minister and party supremo Mamata is now the nucleus of proposed democratic and secular front against the BJP at the national politics. Bakshi and Adhikari, while addressing a gigantic public meeting of party workers at Old Malda today, also urged them to ensure unprecedented triumph of Trinamool in upcoming three-tire rural elections.
Along with Bakshi and Adhikari, state fisheries minister Chandranath Sinha, minister of state of North Bengal development department Bachchu Hansda and minister of state of labour department Zakir Hossain also addressed the public meeting attended by nearly 40000 party workers from all 15 blocks in the district as claimed by district Trinamool leaders.
Moazzem Hossain, district Trinamool president, Nihar Ghosh, MLA and civic body chief in English Bazaar, his deputy Dulal Sarkar, Amlan Bhaduri, district youth Trinamool president, Prasun Roy, district TMCP president, Chaitali Sarkar, district women’s Trinamool president, two former ministers Sabitri Mitra and Krishnendu Choudhury along with district leaders of all branch organizations of Trinamool attended the first ever such a mega public meeting of the ruling party in the district.
“A party of imposters has been trying to divide the country in the name of caste, religion. Such a communal party is the curse for the country. All secular and democratic parties are trying to form a grand alliance which our beloved leader Mamata Banerjee can only lead. It’s a call from the nation which cannot be ignored. With mass support our iconic leader would create history again at the national level,” Bakshi said.
“The entire country is now vigilant of result of the rural elections in West Bengal. Trinamool’s victory would strengthen the anti-BJP democratic and secular forces across the country,” Bakshi, state Trinamool president said.
Adhikari said, “We nominated 10 delegated from each of 2400 polling booths in Malda. But we could not deter other enthusiastic Trinamool supporters and activists who voluntarily have come to attend the meeting. Our target is to win Malda Zilla Parishad independently against unholy alliance of Congress, CPM and BJP.”
“Our leader Mamata Banerjee was emotionally hurt when Malda did not support her in elections despite unprecedented development schemes taken up by her for the district. Time has come to overflow the bag of Trinamool with your votes,” state transport minister said claiming that Trinamool would get support of 51% voters in upcoming rural elections in Malda.
However, both of the top Trinamool leaders warned that party leaders from block to district level should not indulge in corruption and nepotism. “Few block presidents of our party instead of serving people and justifiably evaluating contributions of party workers concentrate upon their own interests. Be cautious. If any such fault is detected, the concerned leader would be thrown out of the party and you would be ignored by all and sundry,” Bakshi warned.
Adhikari also thanked district Trinamool leaders for successfully arranging such a elephantine public meeting before the elections.
