Kolkata: Leader of Opposition in Bengal Suvendu Adhikari on Wednesday skipped the oath-taking ceremony of the new governor, alleging that the TMC government "humiliated" him by allotting him a seat beside two MLAs who defected to the ruling party from the BJP after last year's assembly polls.
The BJP leader also claimed that the TMC government was pursuing "vindictive" politics as it was yet to come to terms with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's poll defeat to him in Nandigram.
"Just to humiliate me and the BJP at the oath-taking ceremony, I was given a seat beside two legislators who had won last year's elections on a party ticket and later defected to the TMC without resigning as saffron camp MLAs. (PTI)
