The Assembly elections are just knocking at the door. In the meanwhile, Sourav Ganguly met West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar. It is described as a courtesy call. However, speculations have started in the political arena. The meeting lasted 1 hour and 55 minutes. The BCCI President has supposedly invited Mr Dhankar to visit the Eden Gardens. As per Dilip Ghosh, the condition of politics in West Bengal is not good. So, good people are being urged to join in BJP.
What BJP Has To Say About It
Very recently, Sourav Ganguly was also seen on stage with Amit Shah. So, many quarters are of the view, that he is trying to enter politics. Dilip Ghosh, BJP State President is making suggestive remarks regarding this meeting. However, when asked about it, he says, that the ultimate answer lies with Sourav Ganguly who has led the Indian cricket team on several occasions. Before, the upcoming political elections, his name has come up once again. There is a political agenda behind every political meeting, it is believed. Sometime back, Amit Shah even signalled his name to be one from the list of Chief ministerial candidates from Bengal. Thus there are so many predictions for the upcoming elections.
Very recently, his wife Dona Ganguly has also signalled about his possibility to join Indian politics. She even performed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s function. That leads to more speculation.
The Meeting At Raj Bhawan
The elections are now coming near. When asked about the meeting, he said that it’s a courtesy visit. He said that he visited Raj Bhawan as he was invited there. He said that he just wanted to meet the Governor, as he never had any opportunity to meet him since he occupied office.
BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has said that all meetings should not be construed as political. The visit comes a few months ahead of the assembly election. BJP is looking for the Bengal chunk. Political analysts are having other opinions about the meeting, though nothing has materialized as of now. As the elections are near, so many people are looking into this matter from a different side.
Speculations For The Elections
The ‘Timing’ many say may be just right. There has been this speculation for years now. Several senior leaders have met Ganguly recently. However, no one is coming to the forefront. There has been a effort to rope in ‘Dada’ as the face of Bengal due to his charisma and public presence.
The timing of the meeting with the Governor, just four months ahead of the election makes the speculations rife. However, Trinamool Congress has said, that the party is sure that Ganguly is not going to contest the election from BJP’s side. There is a political agenda to make this episode a Didi vs Dada fight. So, that is what is true? The truth will definitely come out of the bag. Sourav Ganguly may be prudent enough not to fall in this trap. It is a matter of opinion today. The future of the elections are still unpredictable. Only time will let out the truth. We have to wait and watch.
