SILCHAR, Feb 2: Following Union Minister Sontosh Mohan Dev’s comment on Silchar MP Kabindra Purkayastha as a helpless and failed person, Kanad Purkayastha, son of the Silchar MP, lashed out at Dev. He said Dev should introspect his own career before making such derogatory remarks on others.
Dev had earlier made a scathing attack on Purkayastha alleging that the latter had no access to the Parliament and that he had failed to place the issue of the Silchar-Lumding broad gauge project at the House.
Kanad Purkayastha said Kabindra Purkayastha, after being elected as MP last year, had raised the two burning issues of Barak Valley –– the Silchar-Lumding BG and the East West Corridor –– again and again in the Parliament. He further added that his father had unearthed some hidden information about the shelved Storm Water Drainage Project which was under Dev while he was the Union Minister. Kanad alleged that Dev was trying to cover his misdeeds by attacking Purkayastha unnecessarily. Kanad further lashed out on Dev’s wife Bithika Dev alleging that she had never taken the initiative to speak about the two projects in the Assembly. THE SENTINEL
