Kolkata: At a time when Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari is meeting West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and seeking ways to implement anti-defection law in West Bengal, TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay on Monday again spoke to Speaker of the Parliament Om Birla on removal of Sisir Adhikari and Sunil Mandal from MP post as both of them have defected to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
According to the Trinamool Congress MP, Om Birla has assured him that soon a committee will be formed where both the MPs along with Sudip will be called and after discussion necessary actions will be taken.
“A committee is being made in keeping with the Parliament rules and that committee will review the petition on disqualification of the two MPs. Om Birla asked whether I will be present to which I had said I will go any day he wants me to visit and appear before the committee,” mentioned the TMC MP.
Notably, earlier on May 3, Sudip had called the speaker of the Parliament to remind him about his petition.
However, Sunil Mandal MP of East Burdwan had defected to the BJP last December and though Sisir, father of Suvendu Adhikari didn’t join the BJP officially but was present at Contai during the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s poll campaign and also shared the dais with the PM.
According to sources, Sisir Adhikari said that he had not done anything against TMC for which he will not leave the post.
Incidentally, giving an ultimatum to TMC's Mukul Roy who rejoined TMC, Suvendu said that if Mukul doesn’t resign from MLA post of Krishnagar (North) within 24 hours then he will write to Assembly speaker and after then will take the help of law to make Mukul resign from MLA post that he had won from the BJP seat.
