Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was chastised by Sharma for attending a joint rally in Kolkata with ISF leaders

In the run-up to the West Bengal (WB) elections, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma challenged the party’s relations with the Indian Secular Front (ISF), which is headed by Muslim cleric Abbas Siddiqui.

WB Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was chastised by Sharma for attending a joint rally in Kolkata with ISF leaders, alleging that the coalition was against “Gandhian and Nehruvian secularism” and that the party could not be selective in combating “communalists.”

It should be noted that a video of Siddiqui went viral on social media during the early days of the Coronavirus outbreak in India. He was seen speaking to a huge crowd of supporters and pleading with Allah to use the virus to kill 50 crore Indians.
On Monday’s Newshour, Times Now covered and discussed Siddiqui’s controversial remarks.
Sharma’s comments were met with a rebuttal from Chowdhury, who accused Sharma of assisting the BJP’s agenda.

Many on social media took sides in the war of words between two senior Congress leaders. Some applauded Sharma for speaking out and publicly denouncing his party’s selective approach to fighting communal forces. Others agreed with Chowdhury that Sharma was siding with the BJP by doing so during an election season.
