There Is Anti-BJP Political Space In West Bengal: Abhishek Manu Singhvi

Stating that there is "anti-BJP" space in West Bengal, Congress's Rajya Sabha candidate from the state Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Saturday said he is proud to be nominated from here.

Announcing the decision the Trinamool's core committee meeting in Kolkata, Mamata Banerjee said, "Trinamool will support Abhishek Manu Singhvi". Speaking to mediapersons, Patel said, "I had discussions with Mamata Banerjee today".

"The arithmetic, history and geography of this State shows the presence of an anti-BJP political space here", Mr Singhvi said.

"After an hour-long meeting with the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) members at the Assembly premises in Kolkata, Mr Singhvi told reporters that he was proud to be the party nominee for the March 23 Rajya Sabha polls from the state".

Mr. Singhvi said he did not sense "any opposition" when it came to the support of the Congress MLAs.

"She (Mamata) has spoken in public about her unhappiness with the Congress snub to Trinamul for the Tripura polls, but still she has supported the Congress candidate for the Rajya Sabha polls from Bengal".

At a time the state unit of the CPM has been drawing up strategies for the party congress in Hyderabad next month to adopt a pro-Congress position, Mamata's move has sent calculations awry at Alimuddin Street, the Left party's Bengal headquarters.

Both Chowdhury and Mannan had stayed away from Singhvi's programmes in the state before state Assembly elections in 2016 as the Congress leader had been the counsel of several accused persons in Narada case.

State Congress leaders, however, made it clear that Trinamool Congress's support to Singhvi's candidature for Rajya Sabha polls would not affect their opposition to the ruling party.

Stating that if the BJP had targeted Bengal, her party was looking at the Lal Quila in 2019, Banerjee said, "I will ask them (BJP) to manage Delhi first and then think about Bengal".
