TMC MPs protest Trinamool MPs in Nirmala-ED’s office demanding Adani’s arrest
New Delhi: A delegation of Trinamool Congress (TMC) MPs went to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s office on Thursday demanding the arrest of billionaire Gautam Adani. Trinamool Lok Sabha members Pratima Mondal, Abu Taher Khan, Khalilur Rahman, Sunil Mondal and Rajya Sabha members Shantanu Sen, Abir Biswas, Mausam Noor and Sushmita Dev were in the delegation. Trinamool MPs wore white caps with faces of Adani and Modi painted on them. They left two hats in Nirmala’s office as a protest.
On the same day, another delegation of Trinamool MPs marched to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office. They made the same claim there too. In a tweet on behalf of the party, it is said that we cannot be suppressed in the fight against corruption. The fight to protect our law and justice system will continue. Incidentally, Trinamool has been demanding Adani’s arrest for quite some time. Trinamool also demanded an answer from the Prime Minister as to why Adani is not being arrested till now.

Almost all the parties led by the Congress except the Trinamool are united on the Adani issue. In this situation, there is a question as to where the Trinamool leader’s go it alone policy will ultimately stand in national politics. Recently, the relationship between Congress and Trinamool (Congress and TMC) has become bitter, and the distance between these two parties is expected to increase. Many senior leaders of the two parties agree that this rift cannot be bridged.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav discussed the possibility of regional parties with the Trinamool leader last week. Echoing Mamata, Akhilesh also emphasized the unity of regional parties, excluding the Congress. He informed that the Samajwadi Party will remain with Didi. However, how effective his assurance will be in the end is also in question. Because everyone knows the past of Samajwadi Party. The Trinamool leader will hold a meeting with Biju Janata Dal supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in Bhubaneswar on Friday. There will naturally also be talk of national politics and the strength of regional parties. However, Naveen’s party is still a partner of the NDA at the national level. If Mamata proposes an anti-BJP alliance excluding the Congress, it is doubtful whether Naveen will accept that proposal or not. Although Mamata has a long relationship with Navin.
