“Didi gave him everything, only nobel prize was left”: Madan Mitra

News Desk: After resignation of former railway minister Dinesh Trivedi as a  member of Rajya Sabha on Friday, TMC leader Madan Mitra slammed him and called him traitor.

He said “He lost the Lok Sabha elections and despite that Didi sent him to Rajya Sabha as a Trinamool MP. Didi gave him everything, only nobel prize was left”

He added “Some people would leave TMC, but it won’t affect the party” 

Trivedi after his resignation said that he was feeling suffocated as he was not able to do anything to stop violence in West Bengal.

The former railway minister said “If you sit here quietly and cannot do anything, then it is better that you resign from here and go to the land of Bengal and be with people. I am grateful to my party that it has sent me here, but now I feel a little suffocated. We are unable to do anything and there is atrocity going on. My voice of conscience is saying what Swami Vivekananda used to say — arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached”

He added “What would someone do in a situation when a political party is run by a corporate professional, a person who doesn’t know the ABC of politics?”

Meanwhile, when asked whether he would be joining the BJP, Trivedi said that “At present I’m on my own and I’m feeling relieved in the sense that I don’t feel guilty of not being able to do anything for Bengal” 

Reacting to this the national general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Kailash Vijayvargiya said “Not just Dinesh Trivedi ji, whoever wants to do honest work, cannot stay in Trinamool Congress. If he wants to join Bharatiya Janata Party, we will welcome him”
