His statement came after Mamata Banerjee announced she will be contesting from Nandigram constituency. Adhikari also said that TMC is no longer a political party and has become a company.
However, the TMC turncoat said that the final decision to field candidates would be taken after thorough discussion by the BJP leadership and not like the arbitrary ruling TMC.
Banerjee expressed a surprise on the very first day when she announced that she would contest the assembly elections from Nandigram, the seat of the political heavyweight officer.
He said, “If I am fielded by my party from Nandigram, I will defeat her by a margin of at least 50,000 votes or leave politics.”
The official, however, said unlike TMC, which is run “indigenously” by Banerjee and his nephew Abhishek, the decision was taken after discussing the candidates in the BJP and a call was to be made on his candidature for the party.
“I don’t know from where I will be fielded, whether I will be fielded,” he said, addressing BJP workers after a three-km roadshow.
He said that Banerjee remembers Nandigram before the election, and accused him of giving extensions four times to an IPS officer involved in the Nandigram firing. Banerjee, the official alleged, was playing with the feelings of the people of Nandigram.
“That will not work this time and her party will be democratically dumped into the Bay of Bengal,” Adhikari claimed not more than 30,000 people, mostly brought from other places, attended Banerjee’s meeting at Tekhali in Nandigram on Monday.
