Prime News, National (New Delhi), Dec 3:- As Mamata Banerjee pushes hard to emerge as the face of the Opposition by edging out the Congress, the Trinamool Congress today launched a fresh attack on the grand old party.
An article in the party’s mouthpiece Jago Bangla today stated that the Congress has gone into a “deep freezer” and Opposition parties are now looking up to the West Bengal Chief Minister to fill the vacuum.
The fresh swipe comes against the backdrop of the Trinamool inducting key leaders of the Congress across the country as it tries to expand its national footprint. The Mamata Banerjee-led party recently inducted 12 of the 17 Congress MLAs in Meghalaya, including former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma. The party also took onboard key Congress leaders such as former Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar, cricketer-turned-politician Kirti Azad and former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro.
Trinamool’s fresh attack also comes close on the heels of a tweet by poll strategist Prashant Kishor in which he took a veiled dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying the Congress’s leadership is not the “divine right of an individual”. Kishor also called for the Opposition leadership to be “decided democratically”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
