Kolkata, Mar 12: Congress’ West Bengal chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Saturday took a dig at Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for questioning the credibility of Congress party.
Chowdhury said that the Congress has 20 per cent of the Opposition’s total vote share and asked the TMC chief where her party stands in politics. He also termed Banerjee as BJP agent.
Earlier on Friday, Mamata, referring to the results of the recently concluded Assembly elections in five states where Congress faced debacle, said, “All political polities that want to fight BJP should walk together. Congress is losing their credibility, can’t depend on Congress.
Responding to her statement, Chowdhury slammed Mamata for questioning the Congress party’s credibility.
“Not right to respond to a mad person. Congress has 700 MLAs across India. Does Didi have it? Congress has 20 per cent of the Opposition’s total vote share. Does she have it? She’s saying this to please BJP and act as its agent. She says things like this to stay relevant,” he said.
