BanglaHunt Desk: Sourav Ganguly or Suvendu Adhikari? In reply, Amit Shah said, ‘There are still 6 months left, wait a minute. Don't stop at 2 names, the list is too long. Tensions are running high not only among the general public but also within the party over who will be the BJP's (Bharatiya Janata Party) chief ministerial candidate in the Ekushey elections.
BJP's chief ministerial election
The Gerua camp has not yet said whether someone will be put forward or elected after the victory. However, two names have surfaced in the list of candidates for the chief ministership – former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and Trinamool leader and state Irrigation and Transport Minister Shuvendu Adhikari. Home Minister Amit Shah told reporters at a five-star hotel in Newtown on Friday that the list was long, not just two.
Speculation is growing about Shuvendu Adhikari
For the past several days, there has been speculation in the green camp about the behavior of Shuvendu Adhikari. He is taking part in various public meetings without informing the party. Many people have an idea, but is Shuvendu Adhikari going to join BJP this time? Many people know that Shuvendu Adhikari is at the top of popularity in Bengal after Mamata Banerjee. So once he joins the BJP, it goes without saying that a large number of grassroots members will leave the Green Force and weigh heavily on the Gerua forces.
Sourav Ganguly will join BJP?
After Sourav Ganguly was elected as the president of BCCI, there was speculation that he was going to join the BJP this time. Because, the key to his success was in the hands of Amit Shah. Meanwhile, the Indian Cricket Board is ruled by Sourav Ganguly and Joy Shah, the son of Amit Shah. But despite the public's perception, the 22-yard former captain has always said, “I'm not interested in being associated with any political hall.”
The fall of the Mamata government in Bengal is inevitable!
Regarding the Chief Ministerial election, Amit Shah said, “In the last 5-6 years, the BJP has won the elections without the Chief Ministerial election. The people of Bengal have given a chance to the Congress, CPM and even the Trinamool, so I would say give a chance to the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party). Before the Lok Sabha elections I said I would get 20 seats in Bengal. However, we got 18 seats. This time we will laugh, the fall of the Mamata government in Bengal is inevitable.
