Mamata-Modi war of words intensifies...

congress chief mallikarjun Kharge managed to unite the party after years of discontent and the formation of the rebel G23 group besides playing a key role in forming the 25-member Opposition indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA). A rebellion is now brewing against him in West Bengal. His poster and hoardings were defaced and slogans were raised against him in kolkata days after Kharge overruled bengal unit chief Adhir Chowdhury over his stand on trinamool congress (TMC) chief mamata Banerjee.

The congress on monday sought a report from its bengal unit over the defacement. KC Venugopal, congress general secretary (organisation), said the party was taking a very serious note of grave anti-party activities. The posters and hoardings near Congress’s office in kolkata were defaced on sunday a day after Kharge contradicted Chowdhury’s remarks that TMC chief Banerjee cannot be trusted. “Agent of Trinamool Congress” was scribbled on Kharge’s posters and hoardings. The TMC is part of the india bloc even as the congress does not have an alliance with it in West Bengal.

Banerjee accused a section of monks of asking voters to support the bharatiya janata party (BJP).
