Quick to blame the PM for COVID, desperation ever so high for the By Elections.

Amidst the newly found success in the Assembly Elections, for the Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, threat of her possible resignation on November 05, still remains a factor to worry about.

Article 164(4) of the Constitution states: “A Minister who for any period of six consecutive months is not a member of the Legislature of the State shall at the expiration of that period cease to be a Minister”, and this is what has got the Bengal Leader rattled.

In one of the press conference, the Bengal CM was seen to be asking the PM’s interference, so as to hold speedy elections, in the few seats, 7 to be exact, which even includes the high voltage Bhawanipore seat, which she deserted for Nandigram. Quick to blame the Modi Shah duo for their rallies, as a super spreader for COVID in the state, question row over why the need of election at such an early time, when India is only starting to heal.

State President, Dilip Ghosh, however has put emphasis on the need for the Municipal Elections in the state, which has been pending for two years now. Unlike that of ECI’s role to conduct the bypolls, the Municipal Elections is normally conducted by the State Election Commission, for which Ghosh has even questioned Mamata Banerjee’s role, in not conducting it at all.

Two of its Rajya Sabha seats, also deserves equal attention after one resigned to join BJP, and another was fielded as a candidate. Citing the Budget Session of the Assembly, the party supremo has replied to ECI giving them a green signal to go ahead for the same, now that all the MLAs are present in the Vidhan Sabha.

However, the concern for the by polls still remains a worry for the TMC, especially when there’s no sign of assurance from the ECI’s side. It was also yesterday that we saw the newly appointed Uttarkhand CM having to resign, due to his non elected MLA background, and now what would happen of Mamata Banerjee’s Chief Ministership, only time can tell.
