Bengal actor Badshah Moitra, who was hosting the rally, claimed that the fight in which the Left Front has embarked upon is respected by him for which he will never defect to any other party.

“Defection of the celebs is now common as both the TMC and the BJP is depending on the star cards. But I have always supported the CPI (M), and so to boost the morale I have come here,” said Bengali actor Sreelekha Mitra.

In a wake of other political parties calling the Left Front to be ‘extinct’ in West Bengal, Senior CPI (M) leader and politburo member Biman Basu from the rally challenged other political parties to defeat the Left Front in the upcoming polls.

Meanwhile, TMC minister Bratya Basu also urged the Left Front supporters to vote in favour of the TMC if not for the party they like.

It is pertinent to mention that after the 2019 parliamentary election there was a buzz that just to defeat the ruling Trinamool Congress a large number of the CPI (M) supporters had allegedly voted for the BJP.
