Pawar to unite all national opposition parties in favour of TMC: Malik
Mumbai, Dec 21 (UNI) In view of ongoing political developments ahead of the state assembly elections in West Bengal, NCP president Sharad Pawar has discussed the issues with the ruling Trinamool Congress government, headed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and will try to unite all other national opposition parties in favour of TMC, said NCP national spokesperson and state Minister Nawab Malik on Monday.
“A conspiracy is being hatched to overthrow the TMC government in West Bengal by violating the state’s authority and powers at the behest of the BJP government at the Centre. Although law and order is a
state matter, the Centre is interfering by changing the officials. This is a very grave matter,” he charged.
“Mr Pawar will also meet Ms Banerjee in New Delhi soon, and if necessary, he will travel to West Bengal and meet her there,” Mr Malik added.
He accused the Centre of abusing “its powers and trying to topple elected state governments”, which was a matter of serious concern in a democratic setup.
The BJP and TMC are currently locked in an all-out political war ahead of the state assembly elections in West Bengal in mid-2021.
