Baishakhi rules out immediate chance of joining BJP
Kolkata, 13 March (HS): Baishakhi Banerjee,the close associate of former Mayor Sovan Chattopadhay today categorically denied any plan to fight the coming Lok Sabha elections in spite of getting such an offer from BJP. ''Earlier this month we(she and Sovan Chattopadhyay) received a phone call from a senior BJP leader here offering both of us to join the party and fight Lok Sabha elections for two seats of our choice'',she said here today without naming the BJP leader while trying to scoff off reports in a section of media that both of them might join BJP together and could even participate in the Lok Sabha poll in the wake of their present strain relations with the Trinmool Congress. ''Yes it is true that we have no relations with the ruling TMC for the past few months in any manner, but that does not mean that we plan to join BJP or any other party for that matter,'' she stated further to re establish her claim. Asked about their future plan after maintaining a low profile this year, Baishakhi said though Sovan Chattopadhyay had stepped down from the post of City Mayor, he still retained his post as a TMC legislator and as a Municipal Councillor,but I am a free bird now''. Asked whether there was any possibility of her changing the present stance and join any political party including BJP, Baishakhi without revealing further, however,also did not rule out any such possibility in not so distant future. Though she spoke at the residence of Sovan Chattopadhyay, the former Mayor was not present while she expressed her views. It is very interesting to see whether Baishakhi spoke the truth or she just wanted to divert the public attention from the real issue. Hindusthan Samachar/Ankur/Pramod \
