Kolkata: Home Minister cum Gandhinagar MP Amit Shah’s dinner at BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s house has become the centre of discussion in the political boulevard of West Bengal. While Sourav Ganguly is calling it a simple meeting, TMC leaders are sharply targeting Sourav Ganguly for this. After dinner in Kolkata, Sourav Ganguly praised CM Mamta Banerjee in a private hospital inauguration program.
In this program, Sourav Ganguly has talked about his close relationship with Mamta Banerjee. He said that “Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is very close to me. I had approached him to help this institute.” The former captain of the Indian cricket team also praised Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim. Ganguly described him as a person whom any person can contact at any time.
Amit Shah’s dinner at Sourav Ganguly’s residence on Friday intensified speculations about the BCCI President joining politics. Shah was accompanied by Swapan Dasgupta, party’s state president Sukanta Majumdar and Leader of Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari. Putting an end to these speculations, Ganguly had said on Friday that many types of speculations are being made, but I have known Amit Shah since 2008. I met him while playing. There is nothing more than this.
