Speaking to the media, he first asked, “Do you want to hear the latest news?”
“Right now, 38 TMC MPs have very good relations with us, 21 of whom are in direct contact with us,” Chakraborty said.
Reacting to his claims, TMC MP Santanu Sen said, “I heard that Mithun Chakraborty was admitted to hospital a few days ago. I think he was mentally ill and not physically. .. The problem is that he doesn’t know politics.”
Earlier in the day, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee accused the central government of trying to defame the TMC government in the state.
Addressing a rally in Kolkata, she said: “They (the BJP) don’t have a job, their job is to take control of the state governments through 3-4 agencies. They have taken the Maharashtra, now Jharkhand, but Bengal defeated them.”
“It’s not easy to break Bengal because you have to fight the Royal Bengal Tiger first,” she claimed.
The TMC government is under fire for the recent arrest of its minister and top leader Partha Chatterjee in connection with a school recruitment scam.
