Abhijit Gangopadhyay Joins Politics

The judgement appears to originate from Justice Gangopadhyay's unhappiness with the ruling party. He revealed, "If they (TMC) do not like my decision in numerous situations involving the governing party, I have been ordered to take the pitch because I have been insulted. With that in mind, I'd want to enter the field. "Let us see." He remained noncommittal about his candidature, saying, "It does not depend on me." Nonetheless, insider sources predict that he may run in the forthcoming Lok Sabha Election 2024 from a seat in Kolkata.


Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay is extremely famous, not just in the judiciary but also throughout the state of West Bengal. Recently, he drew harsh criticism in political circles, notably for his handling of corruption investigations involving important personalities such as Mamata Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee. Kunal Ghosh of the Trinamool Congress questioned him, arguing that he should enter politics before retiring. Ghosh said, "There isn't much time left to retire. Please volunteer in politics. See you later."


Despite his cordial relationship with Kunal Ghosh, Justice Gangopadhyay addressed the issue at his retirement announcement, claiming, "Various mouthpieces in the ruling party have challenged me at various times." The call they gave me via the challenge drove me to make this decision. Justice Gangopadhyay's popularity among the public originates from their opinion that he is the only one capable of delivering justice to individuals who have lost their jobs as a result of corruption. His upcoming retirement raises questions regarding how these folks will seek retribution.


In response to these concerns, Abhijit Gangopadhyay advised the public to evaluate political parties critically, stating, "Judge the political parties with your own common sense. Because if you don't stand up, Bengal's good days will never return." He expressed disappointment with the state's current position, implying that those in charge had failed to raise the state.
