UNN/Bijan Banerjee : The brawl between Mamata Banerjee and Union minister Amit Shah over her nephew and his son climbed an octave higher today than the last round, with the Chief Minister challenging the senior BJP leader to fight in an election against her nephew and first defeat him.
There was a second challenge as well. Ms Banerjee, who had dragged Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah into the debate last week, continued the argument today, saying, “I challenge Amit Shah to let his son enter politics. Abhishek Banerjee gets no special privileges from me,” the Chief Minister said, voicing for the first time the issue that has been the proverbial elephant in the room for her party. Abhishek was a young boy when I was beaten up,” she said, recalling the events of August 16, 1990, when she was thrashed by CPM cadres in Kolkata and suffered a head injury. As a young boy, he started asking questions about why I was beaten up. He went around with a flag, shouting the slogan ‘jobab chai, jobab dao’ (we demand an answer),” Ms Banerjee said. Wasn’t there an attempt to bump him off in an accident? He still can’t see properly in one eye. It had almost come out. My family will not do anything that will let you down… I told him go to Rajya Sabha, he said, ‘No I want to be elected’,” she added, referring to the MP from Diamond Harbour.
