Mamata Charges BJP of Attempting to Depose Maharashtra Government in Order to Secure Required Votes for Presidential Elections


Bengal West Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, criticised the BJP on Thursday for attempting to overthrow the Shiv Sena-led government in Maharashtra in an unethical and illegal manner, alleging that the goal of the action is to secure the necessary votes for the upcoming presidential elections. She claimed that the saffron party made a conscious decision to “disturb “the Maharashtra administration as the presidential election draws near.

“The BJP-led administration is destroying democracy. It is awful that it is destroying this nation’s federal government, and I feel extremely sad about it. It is making unethical and unconstitutional attempts to overthrow the Maharashtra administration “At the state secretariat, Banerjee spoke with reporters.

“The BJP is not receiving enough votes in the upcoming presidential elections. In order to obtain the necessary number of votes to elect their candidate for president, they are picking and choosing which governments to overthrow “the leader of Trinamool Congress stated.

Shiv Sena dissident lawmakers headed for Surat on Tuesday, where they camped for the day, and then took a chartered flight to Guwahati in what appears to be an apparent attempt to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi administration (MVA) in Maharashtra.

Following their uprising against the party leadership, this may be the first instance in which MLAs from a western state have been flown to a northeastern state. It was impossible to determine the precise number of rebel MPs who relocated to Guwahati, but the flight is said to have carried 89 people in all, including the crew.

The vote percentage of the ruling dispensation has now surpassed 50%, therefore paving the way for Droupadi Murmu to be elected as the first tribal president. The BJD is supporting NDA presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu. On Tuesday night, only hours after various opposition parties, including the Congress, the TMC, and the NCP, designated former Union minister Yashwant Sinha their joint candidate, BJP chief J P Nadda announced the candidacy of the 64-year-old tribal leader from Odisha.

Banerjee also alleged that the CBI and ED were summoning opposition party leaders, and she asserted that at least 200 TMC workers had received appearance requests from the government agencies despite not being charged. “Opposition politicians who speak out against the policies of the BJP-led government at the centre are detained by central agencies. Notices have been served to more than 200 TMC members. However, BJP politicians are exempt from prosecution. Unrestricted funds are being distributed. Is this not a type of hawala? Investigating this swindle is also necessary “She declared.

The chief minister requested that the BJP send the MLAs to Bengal instead, where they would get warm welcome.

Why bother the Assam administration while they are dealing with floods, I ask you? Send them (the MLAs) to Bengal, and we’ll show them a wonderful time while defending democracy, “She spoke. In a similar vein, TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee criticised the Assam administration for spending more time entertaining renegade MLAs than caring for the flood victims.

“While ASSAM DROWNS, the @BJP4Assam government is occupied carrying out Delhi’s orders to play HOST to REBEL MLAs. I wish Chief Minister @himantabiswa cared more about those impacted by the floods and less on overthrowing the Maharashtra Government. For a remotely controlled subservient government, the priorities are obvious, he tweeted.

The Shiv Sena MLAs’ revolt, according to the BJP, is a party internal affair, and the party rejected the accusations as unfounded.

“The political unrest in Maharashtra has nothing to do with the BJP. It is a result of Shiv Sena internal issues. And TMC and its leaders should refrain from lecturing us on political ethics. The entire nation is aware of their impeccable moral character “Sukanta Majumdar, the BJP’s West Bengal president, stated.
