CricketYusuf Pathan to contest election from Bengal, BJP slams Trinamool Congress

Srinagar: Former India cricketer Yusuf Pathan is all set to contest Lok Sabha elections on Trinamool Congress ticket from West Bengal, with BJP coming down heavily on the ruling Bengal party for the nomination of Pathan.

Bengal BJP chief Sukanta Majumdar has pointed out that TMC candidates Kirti Azad and Yusuf Pathan aren’t from the state.

“Just half an hour before TMC’s list was announced, Abhishek Banerjee was making statements like the BJP is anti-Bengal. Now, when the candidates are announced, it’s clear that TMC is bringing people from outside. I don’t know if Kirti Azad and Yusuf Pathan are Bengali, Yusuf Pathan is from Gujarat, and so is PM Modi, but for them, PM Modi is an outsider,” he said.

Sukanta Majumdar claimed that the Trinamool Congress doesn’t have suitable candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.

“They (TMC) don’t have any candidates and hence they’ve given the ticket to a sitting minister. INDIA alliance is nothing but a ship without a captain. It’s CM Mamata Banerjee’s strategy and also she is in fear that no other leader gets much importance that one can become a bigger leader than Mamata Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee, hence they give tickets to actresses so that her nephew continues to be a politician,” he added.

The Trinamool Congress has declared ex-cricketer Yusuf Pathan as its candidate from Baharampur.
