Nearly a month after political heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari quit the TMC and joined the BJP, his father and Bengal's ruling party MP SisirAdhikari was on Tuesday removed from the post of chairman of Digha Shankarpur Development Authority (DSDA).TMC MLA Akhil Giri, known to be a detractor of Suvendu and his family, replaced Sishir Adhikari as the chief of DSDA -- which is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the beach town in Purba Medinipur."He did not do anything as the chairman of the DSDA and was hence removed," Mr Giri said.
Mr Adhikari is the district president of the ruling party in Purba Medinipur.TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said that the legislator was "not being able to perform as the chairman of the agency"."Sisir-da is a veteran leader. Maybe, he was unwell. But we were pained when he did not utter any word against his sons Suvendu and Soumendu who had been constantly attacking the TMC after switching over to the BJP," Mr Ghosh said.
