Pakistani stooge go back: Leader of opposition Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s convoy blocked by angry protesters in his own constituency

The leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, Congress lawmaker Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had to face severe protests in his constituency of Berhampur over the statements he had made about the Kashmir issue during parliamentary debate.

As Chowdhury arrived in his constituency after a long session of the parliament, a group of angry people surrounded his convoy and protested against him by waving black flags. They were angered with the statements which Chowdhury had made on the subjects of Article 370 and the bifurcation of Jammu Kashmir.

Some protesters even went on to the extent of calling Chowdhury to be a “stooge of Pakistan.” As the protests grew intense, Chowdhury stepped out his car and tried to explain the protesters about his stance on the issue. But the protesters did not appear to be in any mood to listen to any of his clarifications.

Realising that the situation is not favorable, Chowdhury quickly went back to his car and left the place.

Strongly opposing the Centre government’s move of abolishing article 370, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had called Kashmir “an international issue.” The remark attracted criticism for Chowdhury from all corners of the nation. However, remaining undeterred, Chowdhury kept opposing the moves by Centre government for the remainder of the Parliament session.

It seems like following his statements, which did not go down well with many, even his popularity in his own constituency has taken a hit. It remains to be seen how Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury makes up for the damage and gains back the support of the people in Berhampur.
