Mamata to join hands with BJP again in case of hung assembly in Bengal: Yechury

Mamata to join hands with BJP again in case of hung assembly in Bengal: Yechury

Kolkata, Feb 28 (PTI) CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram
Yechury on Sunday said that the Trinamool Congress has to be
defeated first to stop the communal bandwagon of the RSS-BJP,
and claimed that the TMC might rejoin the NDA to form the
government in West Bengal in case of a hung assembly.

Terming the ongoing political tussle between the TMC
and the BJP as a “mock fight”, Yechury alleged that the
saffron party is using money from the PM CARES fund, set up to
fight the COVID-19 pandemic, to “buy” leaders during the time
of elections.

“The farmers at the Singhu border in Delhi are
fighting against the (Narendra) Modi government”s anti-people
policies. If farmers who provide us with food can put up such
a gallant fight, we too can do it here,” he said.

“This grand alliance of the Left and the secular
forces will fight to defeat the corrupt TMC government and the
BJP in the state, will fight for a better Bengal,” Yechury
said while addressing a joint rally at the Brigade Parade
Ground in Kolkata ahead of the assembly election in West

The CPI(M) leader alleged that the Mamata Banerjee
administration is doing the same to youths what the Narendra
Modi government is doing against the farmers.

“Many people ask me what we would do in case of a hung
assembly. I tell them to direct their question to the TMC as
they are in the best position to answer it.

“The TMC has been part of NDA (for several years)
since 1998. It was part of the NDA government (at the Centre).
In case of a hung assembly, I am confident that the TMC would
join hands with the BJP to form the state”s government,” he

“All the secular forces have to fight together to
defeat the TMC and the BJP in Bengal. Once we stop this
communal juggernaut in Bengal, we will stop it in the country
also,” Yechury said.

He claimed that the BJP and the TMC are using religion
to divert attention from the problems being faced by the
people of the country and the state.

Criticising the BJP for attacking several other
political parties, especially the Congress, over the issue of
dynasty politics, Yechury wondered how Union Home Minister
Amit Shahs son became the secretary of the Board of Control
for Cricket in India (BCCI).

“The BJP talks about corruption and dynasty politics.
A stadium is named after Narendra Modi. Amit Shah”s son is an
office-bearer in the cricket association,” he said.

“In the name of the corona, Prime Minister Narendra
Modi has set up a fund (PM CARES Fund), and that money is
being used to buy and sell leaders during elections,” he said.

A number of leaders from various parties, mainly the
ruling TMC, have joined the saffron camp ahead of the West
Bengal assembly election.

The CPI(M) general secretary asserted that West Bengal
is headed for a triangular fight in the coming assembly polls
as the Left-Congress electoral alliance is a formidable
contender against the TMC and the BJP.

Elections to the West Bengal assembly will be held in
eight phases. The first and last phase of polling will be held
on March 27 and April 29 respectively. Votes will be counted
on May 2. PTI SUS PNT
