| Wednesday | 5th May, 2021
KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress' victory in East and West Midnapore busted the myth that both these districts were strongholds of the 'Adhikari' family, political analysts opined.
In East Midnapore, the BJP won a total of six seats (without taking Nandigram's result into consideration), including Kanthi Uttar, Kanthi Dakshin, Bhagabanpur, Khejuri, Moyna and Haldia.
"The result has proved that it was a mere myth that the Adhikari family, mainly turncoat Suvendu Adhikari, used to run the show in both the Midnapore districts.
TMC was ahead in all the 16 Assembly segments in 2019 Parliamentary polls when Sisir Adhikari and Dibyendu Adhikari became MP after contesting as TMC candidates from Kanthi and Tamluk Lok Sabha seats respectively.
"We are thankful to the almighty that he (Suvendu Adhikari) had left the party and joined BJP.
