He alleged that there was no point in staying in the Trinamool Congress because I was not allowed to work for the people. However, MLA Tiwari of Pandabeshwar constituency has not resigned from the assembly.
The Minister of Municipal Affairs was targeted
In a letter to Municipal Affairs Minister Firhad Hakeem a few days back, Pandabeshwar MLA Tiwari wrote that Asansol Municipal Corporation was deprived of Rs 2,000 crore from the Center as it was the state government in the city elections under the Smart City scheme. Obstructed. Targeting the minister, Tiwari said softmen like him were ruining the party. He said the best way to save the party was to declare Mamata Banerjee Subhendu Adhikari as her successor. Shubhendu is the most popular Trinamool leader after him. Your defeat is certain if you ignore this fact.

The Trinamool Congress called Tiwari a ‘traitor’
Sources said that earlier it was believed that Tiwari would meet the Chief Minister in Kolkata on Friday, but now he rarely meets the party supremo.
