SILCHAR, Jan 22: “Kabindra Purkayastha virtually made a blunder by deputing his son Kanad as the MP nominee,” stated BJP Cachar district president Kirit Bhushan Purkayastha, who happens to be the brother of the Silchar MP. Kirit Bhushan spoke to the media in his first press conference after being elected as the president of the district unit of BJP.
Kirit Bhushan, who defeated Partha Sarathi Chanda deputed by Kabindra Purkayastha for contesting the post of district BJP president, virtually admitted that his relation with Kabindra Purkayastha had soured in the recent times. He had also made a 45-member district committee comprising all hard-core anti-Kabindra leaders. Kirit Bhushan clarified that he had given importance to quality and calibre and hoped that the new committee would be able to revitalize the party. He further said that in near future the anti-lobby would be compelled to merge with the new committee.
Commenting on the recent debacle in the Municipality election, Kirit Bhushan said though it was unanimously decided that he would lead the election, subsequently he was sidelined. Kirit Bhushan admitted that he did not have intimate and cordial relation now with his elder brother. THE SENTINEL
