Buddhadeb Bhattacharya likely to be present in Brigade rally for ‘five minutes’ on February 28
Former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya to the Brigade rally on February 28 which is organised by the Left Front and Congress.
According to sources, former state chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya has sent a message to the party expressing his desire to attend the brigade rally. Although he is bedridden due to illness, he wants to come to the Brigade rally.
The CPIM has requested Bhattacharya’s medical team to allow him to take part in the Brigade for five minutes. The doctors, though, haven’t yet given the permission of allowing ailing ex-Finance Minister of Bengal to be present in the rally.
CPIM leader Robin Deb said, “We are trying [to bring Bhattacharya to Brigade]. But his doctors have not given the permission yet. If they allow, then he might come to Brigade for five minutes.”
CPIM students and youth leaders have appealed to the party to arrange for Buddha's virtual presence in the brigade.
However, the doctors treating Buddhadeb Bhattacharya feel that he shouldn’t go to the brigade because there will be a lot of pollution in the ground and he has a dust allergy.
Thus, it remains to be seen if the former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya will be present in the brigade rally to boost the party’s campaign programme.
