Sougata Roy, a member of the Trinamool Congress, attacked Sisir Adhikari and his son Dibyendu Adhikari on Sunday for disobeying party rules and voting in the Vice-Presidential election.
When speaking to the media, Sougata Roy took a harsh stance towards Sisir Adhikari and his son Dibyendu Adhikari. Said Sougata Roy, ‘They have been asked to showcause. Why didn’t they obey the party’s order? The matter against Shishir Adhikari is subjudice now. Speaker will take action against him. If not, the party will surely take action.’
Sudip Bandyopadhyay, a member of the Trinamool Congress and the leader of the House in the Lok Sabha, has written to Sisir Adhikari and his son Dibyendu Adhikari to ask them to explain why the former vice president decided to run for president despite the party’s decision to boycott the election.
In violation of party directives, two Trinamool Congress MPs cast ballots in the vice presidential election. They are two Adhikari family members. Both Sisir Adhikari and his son Dibyendu Adhikari are members of parliament from the Kanthi.
Despite being told not to by the Trinamool high leadership, they both cast ballots in the Vice-Presidential election on Saturday. According to the Trinamool Parliamentary Party, it is an act against the party. Sudeep Banerjee, the leader of the Trinamool Lok Sabha party, wrote to Sisir Adhikari and his son to clarify the situation.
