Shubhendu Adhikari is not a politician but a goon: Sujata
After joining the Trinamool Congress, Sujatha Mandal said that BJP’s ground reality is not there. That is why the Trinamool Congress is luring ministers and deputy chief ministers into the party. She said that Shubhendu was not an official leader, but a goon.

BJP gives place to “politically disabled” people?
Sujatha Mandal said that the BJP gives place to sort of (politically) disabled people. Those fighting for the party have no place in the BJP. Sujata said that Shubhendu Adhikari is not a leader but a tyrant. I do not consider him a leader. He is doing politics by scaring people. On the question of whether Sumatra Khan will leave BJP and join Trinamool Congress? Sujata said, “If Sumatra is intelligent, he will return to the AITMC.”
Sujata said that the next Trinamool Congress government will be formed in West Bengal under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee.
