A new controversy started around BJP leader Rajib Banerjee's social media post where he took a jibe at BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari and stated that the people of West Bengal will not take BJP’s claim of imposing Article 356 in the state as the government is formed due to the landslide votes given by the people.
It is to be noted, BJP’s Bengal unit called for a high-level organizational meet on Tuesday. However, party's heavyweights like Mukul Roy, Shamik Bhattacharya and Rajib Banerjee remained absent.
In context to the meeting, Rajib Banerjee took to Twitter to say that imposing the president’s rule in the state will amplify incidents like post-poll violence and that it would be going against the people’s mandate.
"We should all rise above politics and stand by the people during COVID-19 and Yash," he said

Rajib Banerjee's post has ignited the fire of speculation in the political arena that he might defect back to the ruling Trinamool Congress. However, Banerjee has not said anything regarding it yet.
