New Delhi:

Margaret Alva, the joint opposition candidate operating for Vice President, has criticised the Trinamool Congress’s resolution to abstain from voting within the election. Mr Alva in a tweet reminded West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s celebration that the Vice Presidential election “is not the time for whataboutery, ego or anger”.

“The TMC’s resolution to abstain from voting within the VP election is disappointing. This is not the time for ‘whataboutery’, ego or anger. That is the time for braveness, management and unity. I imagine, Mamata Banerjee, who’s the epitome of braveness, will stand with the opposition,” Ms Alva tweeted.

The ruling BJP’s Vice President candidate is Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, and Ms Banerjee had met with him and BJP’s northeast strategist and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma not too long ago.

With the choice to abstain from voting, the Trinamool Congress has delivered the newest blow to opposition unity after events just like the Shiv Sena and the JMM supported Droupadi Murmu, the Nationwide Democratic Alliance candidate within the presidential election and now the President-elect.

Nationwide Convention chief Omar Abdullah has in contrast the unity amongst opposition events to Greek mythological character ‘Chimera’, which has additionally come to imply an not possible thought or hope, and stated in the end political events will do what’s in their very own curiosity.

“Opposition unity is a little bit of a chimera. Finally political events will do what’s in their very own curiosity and that is appropriately. Jammu and Kashmir noticed this once we have been left excessive and dry by ‘pals’ in 2019…” Mr Abdullah tweeted yesterday.

Ms Banerjee’s nephew Abhijit Banerjee had stated the celebration unanimously determined to not help both Mr Dhankhar or Ms Alva.

“The query of supporting the NDA (BJP-led Nationwide Democratic Alliance) candidate would not even come up. The way in which the opposition candidate was determined with out correct session and deliberation with a celebration which has 35 MPs in each the homes, we’ve got determined unanimously to abstain from the voting course of,” the Trinamool Congresss MP advised reporters.

Mr Dhankhar’s elevation as Vice President will transfer him out of Bengal to Delhi, and for Ms Banerjee, that may be a big win. The Chief Minister and Mr Dhankhar have clashed relentlessly over the previous three years, with Ms Banerjee accusing the governor of hounding her on the occasion of the BJP on the centre.
