JD-U official who made controversial comments towards Mamata forced to resign
JD-U spokespeson was making controversial comments for the past one week
PATNA: A Janata Dal United (JD-U) spokesperson who, of late, was seen taking a different line from the party was forced to resign for his controversial remarks.
Ajay Alok who had caused much embarrassment to the party for his public remarks over certain issues resigned on Thursday under pressures from the party leadership, JD-U sources confirmed. However, Alok said he had resigned on his own.
“I have resigned as a Spokesperson from JDU as I think I am not doing good job as my views which are mine of course do not match with my party , Thanks to my Party and my President who has always supported me and I don’t want to be a source of embarrassment for @NitishKumar,” Alok has tweeted.
The JD-U spokesperson had made three controversial comments which didn’t match with the stand of the party which still follows the “secular and liberal” lines. Especially his “Mini Pakistan” comments have not gone down within the party.
The biggest embarrassment came when he alleged West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is converting her home state into a “mini Pakistan” adding people of Bihar were being driven out by Rohingyas.
“What is happening is West Bengal is a matter of very serious concern. Biharis are being driven out of the state by the Rohingya and Mamata Banerjee is required to act fast in this regard,” Ajay Alok had told a section of media on Wednesday.
He categorically stated that those driving the Biharis out from Bengal are not the Bengalis but Rohingyas. He suggested Mamata Baneejee to prevent her state turning into “minis Pakistan”.
Then he blamed the Union home minister Amit Shah for “illegal immigration” and alleged corrupt approach of the Border Security Force (BSF) officials had led to infiltration of Bangladeshi nationals and Rohingyas.
He also took potshots at party vice-president and poll strategist Prashant Kishor for deciding to work for Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) while his party said it had nothing to with Kishor’s professional firm.
“As far as Kishor’s services are concerned, he is doing a wonderful job,” the JD-U asserted.
