Congress West Bengal unit President threatens to complain to Rahul Gandhi against Abhishek Singhvi

The West Bengal Unit President of the Congress party, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary, has threatened to complain to Rahul Gandhi against Abhishek Manu Singhvi for going against the interests of the party in the state.

Advocate Singhvi appeared in the Apex Court for the Mamata Banerjee government opposing the demand for the deployment of Central forces in the state ahead of the Panchayat elections while Chowdhary appeared in the Calcutta High Court to defend his plea seeking the deployment of Central forces to ensure fair polls.

Earlier, Abhishek Manu Singhvi had secured his nomination to the Rajya Sabha with the support from MLAs of the Trinamool Congress. And after Mamata Banerjee met with Sonia Gandhi, it appears that there isCongre some understanding between the two parties ahead of the 2019 General Elections.  Under such circumstances, complaints by leaders from the state unit of the party are likely to go unheard.

West Bengal has witnessed a spate of violence as opposition parties accused the TMC of using violence to prevent their candidates from filing their nomination papers. Numerous candidates and workers from the opposition parties have been allegedly attacked by the cadres of Trinamool Congress.

The Panchayat Elections are due to be held in three phases on the 1st, 3rd and the 5th of May.
