BJP Birbhum leader asks workers to remain ‘inactive’, Bengal party chief targets

Unhappy with the formation of new Birbhum district committee BJP Leader Dudhkumar Mandal on Sunday asked his supporters not to participate in party activities and remain “inactive”.

one in Facebook Post, Mandal, who is a member of the BJP’s state working committee, wrote: “Committees have been formed from district to block level without consulting me. So BJP supporters and workers who love me should sit quietly without any fuss.

Mandal said that he was not getting due respect from the party leadership. Mandal, who became a member of Mayureshwar gram panchayat in Birbhum for the first time in 1986, when there was no BJP organization in the state, said, “When no one was around, I was there… I won in 2016 (panchayat elections) too Was. When everyone ran away. But now I have no importance in the party.

Asked if he had complained to the state leadership, an angry Mandal said: “Who do I tell? Seeing me here, party workers started agitation here. That’s what matters to me. For a long time, none of the people associated with the party are getting respect. As a result, the party seems to be falling apart with each passing day.

BJP’s state unit chief Sukanta Majumdar came down heavily on him, saying some “people have started thinking that they become great leaders”. “None of us are present outside the party. They can be forgotten.. Nowhere in the constitution of the party it is written that these committees should be constituted in consultation with Dudhkumar Mandal.

BJP national general secretary Anupam Hazra, however, said it is a matter of concern if a person like Mandal gets away from organizational work.
