Mamata converting Bengal into ‘mini Pakistan’, alleges Nitish Kumar’s party
This is first time that the JD-U has made such harsh comments towards West Bengal CM
PATNA: The Janata Dal (United) on Wednesday alleged West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is converting her home state into a “mini Pakistan” adding people of Bihar were being driven out by Rohingyas. The JD-U is headed by Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar.
“What is happening is West Bengal is a matter of very serious concern. Biharis are being driven out of the state by the Rohingya and Mamata Banerjee is required to act fast in this regard,” JD-U spokesperson Ajay Alok told a section of media on Wednesday.
He categorically stated that those driving the Biharis out from Bengal are now the Bengalis but Rohingyas. He suggested Mamata Banerjee to prevent her state turning into “minis Pakistan”.
This is for the first time that any JD-U leader has made such a harsh comment against Mamata Banerjee. The other senior leaders too have not denied or contradicted this comment made by none other than the spokesperson of a party.
The comments came barely hours after the West Bengal chief minister thanked her Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar for deciding about not to be a part of the NDA outside Bihar and contesting elections in four states alone.
What is interesting, the JD-U has also given green signal to its vice-president-cum-poll strategist Prashant Kishor to work for Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC), ignoring objections from the BJP.
“The JD-U has nothing to do with Kishor’s professional firm but the party wants the TMC to lose in West Bengal elections,” JD-U national general secretary KC Tyagi told the media at the end of party’s national executive meet on Sunday.
According to him, nobody questioned Kishor when his firm worked for Jaganmohan Reddy in Andhra Pradesh.
