Suvendu Adhikari's father removed as Digha Sankarpur Development Authority Chairman


Sisir Adhikari, Trinamool Congress MP & Suvendu Adhikari's father has been removed as the Chairman of Digha Sankarpur Development Authority.


He has been replaced by TMC MLA Akhil Giri who is known as a staunch rival of Suvendu Adhikari.


The development has come two weeks after 15 TMC councillors of Contai Municipality led by the former administrator of the civic board and younger brother of Suvendu Adhikari left the party to join the saffron camp ahead of the West Bengal elections.

Earlier, Suvendu Adhikari had quit the Trinamool Congress to join the BJP last month.

Soumendu Adhikari who recently quit the TMC to join the BJP had recently claimed that he has been illegally removed by the West Bengal government's Municipal Affairs Department from the post of administrator of the civic body.
