Mamata RSS core-committee member, compromised with BJP: Adhir

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Senior Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury Wednesday mocked saying she is a core committee member of the RSS and has compromised with the BJP in the state.

Chowdhury, a former Union who hails from district of the state, made this comment following Banerjee's statement that the RSS is supporting candidates in that district.

"How did she know who is being supported by the RSS? It seems she is a core-committee member of the RSS. Everybody knows who had compromised with the BJP in the state," Chowdhury, a former state president, said.

He is contesting from Beharampore seat of district.

Banerjee is saying she would not support Prime but she has to come clean on whether or not she would support the BJP if someone else is selected as the prime ministerial candidate by the BJP, Chowdhury said.

Earlier in the day, Banerjee alleged that the RSS is supporting the Congress nominee in Behrampore and Avijit Mukerjee, son of former Pranab Mukherjee, who is contesting from Jangipur seat in the same district.

"Here Congress is an ally with the BJP. I have information that in Behrampore the Congress is being supported by the RSS.... And in Jangipur, Pranab Mukherjee's son is fighting the elections with the help of the RSS," she claimed at an election rally.

Replying to this, said at a rally that it is the Congress which is fighting the BJP across the country and has never alligned with the saffron party, unlike the TMC which has been

part of the BJP-led NDA in the past.
