Trinamool Congress is mocking Shubhendu Adhikari’s claims but it should be noted that film actor and BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty claimed that 38 Trinamool Congress MLAs are in direct contact with him.
Is Operation Lotus going on in West Bengal now? The question has arisen because Leader of Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly, Shubhendu Adhikari, has claimed that the Trinamool Congress government will cease to exist in the state after December this year. Not only this, Shubhendu Adhikari has also claimed that assembly elections will also be held in West Bengal along with Lok Sabha elections in 2024. Shubhendu Adhikari told reporters at Tamluk in East Medinipur district that preparations are being made to oust the Trinamool Congress government from the state. “Wait a few months, this government will not be in power in West Bengal,” BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari said when reporters spoke more vehemently.
It may be noted that in the last few months, Shubhendu Adhikari has repeatedly claimed that opposition-ruled states like Jharkhand, Rajasthan and West Bengal will have a Maharashtra-like situation. Let us also remind you that Shubhendu Adhikari, after recently meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi, said that the central government will implement the CAA rules after the booster dose campaign is over. Not only this, BJP MLA Asim Sarkar has claimed that the amended Citizenship Act is likely to be implemented by December. During his visit to Delhi, Shubhendu Adhikari also handed over a list of 100 people allegedly involved in the Bengal teacher recruitment scam to the central government and demanded an investigation. If this investigation takes place, many Trinamool Congress leaders and government officials may come under fire.

Trinamool Congress is mocking Shubhendu Adhikari’s claims but it should be noted that film actor and BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty claimed that 38 Trinamool Congress MLAs are in direct contact with him. If we look at the political situation in West Bengal, it is clear that the way the image of the Trinamool Congress government has been tarnished by the Parth Chatterjee case has increased the anxiety of party leaders and activists. Not only this, when Mamata Banerjee expanded her cabinet recently, those who did not become ministers or who were dropped were also said to be upset.
Not only this, Trinamool Congress workers have now resorted to accusing their own leaders and vandalizing their houses. The house of Trinamool Congress MLA Idris Ali in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district was vandalized by his own party workers, alleging that he had taken money for allotment of posts in the party’s local body. However, Idris Ali has denied the allegation and claimed that some local TMC leaders are trying to bring people with dubious backgrounds into the party’s block-level organization.

However, only time will tell whether Operation Lotus succeeds in West Bengal. Currently, the Trinamool Congress is happy with the development in Bihar. The party has welcomed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s move to break away from the NDA. The Trinamool Congress alleged that no party could protect its identity by being in alliance with the BJP as the BJP’s “grab everything” politics did not believe in the existence of regional parties. The Trinamool Congress has said it is keeping a close eye on political developments in the neighboring state. But if seen, the Trinamool Congress will have to keep this fast till December, as by then the BJP would have been freed from the preoccupation of assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
