Kolkata: In the West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021, Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress had given an assembly ticket to a candidate who holds citizenship of both India and Bangladesh. Leader of opposition in Bengal Shubhendu Adhikari on Saturday cornered Mamata Banerjee in the matter. In a series of tweets, he wrote that bjp's Swapan Majumdar, who contested from Bongaon South assembly seat in the 2021 West Bengal elections, had defeated TMC candidate Alo Rani Sarkar.
He said that after being dissatisfied with the election results, TMC candidate Alo Rani Sarkar had filed a petition in the court. The BJP leader said the Calcutta High Court has dismissed the petition as his name is on the voters' list of Bangladesh. He is a Bangladeshi citizen. Let us know that the Calcutta High Court, while hearing the matter, has declared the citizenship of the TMC leader as illegal.
Shubhendu Adhikari said the TMC is guilty of violating sub-section 5 of Section 29A. He tried to get a foreign national elected. He did not compromise on the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India and kept allegiance to the constitution of the country. He questioned whether the registration of such a political party should not be cancelled.
