A team of BJP MLAs led by Suvendu Adhikari reached Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday. Tweeting about the meeting, the governor said that more than 50 BJP MLAs led by opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari had met the governor to discuss the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
Kolkata: Following the results of the West Bengal Assembly elections, the opposite Ganges has started flowing in the state. Earlier, TMC leaders used to join BJP one after another, now it seems that after the defeat of the party, many leaders can go to TMC again. Mukul Roy, a big name in Bengali politics and a former Union Minister, has recently returned to his old party. So far, however, Suvendu Adhikari, who left the TMC in the state and joined the BJP, has been frozen.
This demand of the governor
A team of BJP MLAs led by Suvendu Adhikari reached Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday. Tweeting about the meeting, the governor said that more than 50 BJP MLAs led by opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari had met the governor to discuss the deteriorating law and order situation in the state. The governor also assured opposition leaders and legislators to intervene.
In front of the governor, the legislators claimed that Hindus in the state were being targeted by Muslims and were under constant attack after the election results. The governor has also been asked to strictly enforce anti-discipline laws in the state. The BJP fears that after the election results, more of its MLAs may change sides and go to the TMC.
The BJP has 744 MLAs in the state but only 50 MLAs were present during the meeting with the governor. All of these legislators have submitted a memorandum to the governor regarding post-vote violence and law and order.
Why 24 MLAs did not come?
After the meeting, there was speculation as to why 24 BJP MLAs did not attend the meeting and whether the MLAs were in touch with the TMC. Unveiling the veil of speculation, Suvendu Adhikari said that only a delegation of 30 MLAs was invited to the meeting with the permission of the Raj Bhavan, but 50 MLAs arrived at the Raj Bhavan with enthusiasm and no one was stopped after that.
On the other hand, Suvendu Adhikari had earlier pointed out to Mukul Roy that if Mukul Roy does not resign from the MLA post, he will appeal to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly to take action against him under the anti-opposition law. . Mukul Roy left the BJP and joined the Trinamool Congress last week. He contested on a BJP ticket and won the Krishnanagar North seat.
