Trinamool MP Derek O’Brien and Trinamool spokesman Kunal Ghosh also tweeted about the issue. BJP leaders did not want to speak openly about this. However, it is true that Kaushik Chand has fought multiple cases for the BJP at one time. He was also the Additional Solicitor General of the state on behalf of the Center. Kaushik Chanda was also very close to former BJP state president Rahul Sinha. In this situation, the Nandigram case made a fuss before the case was settled.
However, veteran High Court lawyer and CPM leader Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya countered, “Such acts are unconstitutional. If a Chief Minister thinks that he will not get proper justice from the judges, then the common man will lose confidence in the judiciary. After that, anyone will come and say, I don’t want this judge, let the case be sent to another court. ‘
