Kabindra Purkayastha wants son Kanad to establish in politics

Kabindra wants son to establish in politics

‘New faces to be included in district BJP in the 2011 Assembly election’

SILCHAR, Jan 28: “The group in Cachar BJP which tried to sabotage my victory in the last general election was also instrumental in getting Kirit Bhushan Purkayastha elected as the district president of the BJP,” said Kabindra Purkayastha while talking to The Sentinel today.

The veteran BJP leader said he will keep an eye over the activities of the newly formed district committee for some time and then, if necessary, will seek help from the State and the Central leadership to keep the house in order prior to the 2011 Assembly election.

Kabindra Purkayastha further added that new faces would be included in the party in the ensuing 2011 Assembly election. He also said that his son Kanad Purkayastha was very much in the race.

 Making a dig at his brother Kirit Bhushan, the newly elected district president said the former did not even consulted with him before forming the new district committee.

Kirit Bhushan should have included two more candidates for the new executive committee, Purkayastha added.

Purkayastha also clarified that he had earlier talked to the senior district leaders before deputing his son Kanad as his MP nominee and said that nobody raised the issue earlier. Kirit Bhushan had earlier alleged that Kabindra Purkayastha had made a blunder by deputing his son as his MP nominee.

The septuagenarian leader further said he will not fight elections any more and that he now desired to see his son establish himself in politics. He said Kanad has gathered much experience and has the ability to become an MLA.

Commenting on Ranjit Dutta becoming the State BJP president, Kabindra said all the MPs and MLAs were opposed to Dutta becoming the State chief.

However, he has no personal enmity with Dutta, clarifying this Purkayastha said in the backdrop of the current political scenario in the State, he wanted a more matured and experienced leader like Rajen Gohain as the State president who could smoothen alliance with other political parties in the next Assembly election.
