Rewarded for 40 years of service: Rahul Sinha hits out at BJP after losing post to former TMC man

Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rahul Sinha on Saturday hit out at his own party for losing his post to a Trinamool Congress (TMC) turncoat as the saffron brigade brought a major rejig under its national president Jagat Prakash Nadda.

Sinha, who was one of the BJP's national secretaries, was dropped from the post making way for TMC-turned BJP leader Anupam Hazra.

Responding sharply, Sinha said, "I have worked for the BJP for 40 years. The reward of working for the party since its inception is that I had to make way for a leader who came from the TMC. Nothing can be more unfortunate than this."

"I am not going to spare a word in favour of or against the decision. I will speak on the matter within 10-12 days and will decide the future course of my career," he added.

Sinha had unsuccessfully contested from Kolkata Uttar seat in the 2019 General Elections.

In another rejig, BJP leader Mukul Roy, a former TMC number two man, has been appointed as the national vice president of the party from West Bengal.
