Incidentally, Shishir Adhikari’s son Shuvendu left the Trinamool Congress and joined the BJP. Opposition to the move was also created at the local political level by severing long-standing ties with the grassroots. Especially Shuvendu has been attacked more than once on his own average. Now it is being investigated whether there is any such reason behind the death threat to the owner of Shishir.
