West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday expressed disappointment over Shree Cement’s last-minute closure of the joint venture with East Bengal. Speaking at a press conference in Nabanna, CM Banerjee said that he had actually received a letter from Shree Cement where investors had raised the issue of parting ways with Indian Super League (ISL) club East Bengal.
CM Banerjee said that she was not very convinced with the decision and called the move a ‘bad attitude’.
He said, ‘I am not going to take any decision on East Bengal. The officers who were there earlier have sent me a letter to inform that they will not be able to stay with East Bengal at this last moment. This is a very bad attitude,” Banerjee said.
Also, the CM said that she will try to calm things down and resolve the issue between the two parties involved as East Bengal has a rich heritage and is eligible to play in the ISL, the country’s top tier. Is. League.
He also said that everyone wants clubs like Mohun Bagan, East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting to play in the ISL. Expressing happiness that Mohun Bagan is still playing in the ISL, the Chief Minister called for extending support to East Bengal during this difficult time.
Earlier, the chief minister was instrumental in his last-minute bid to tie up with Shree Cement East Bengal to play in the final season of the ISL.
As things stand now, there has been no official communication from either side. However, if the investors’ verdict holds up, it could well see the end of East Bengal’s participation in the ISL and I-League.
