4 Trinamool Congress leaders including Monirul Islam joins BJP!
A day after several Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders including Mukul Roy's son Subhranshu Roy joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), four more TMC leaders joined the BJP.
The trend of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders jumping ship to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continued on Wednesday, 29 May, as TMC MLA Manirul Islam, along with party leaders Gadadhar Hazra, Mohammad Asif Iqbal and Nimai Das, joined the saffron party in Delhi.
The BJP won 18 seats in West Bengal in Lok Sabha elections and TMC 22 seats. They also got 40% vote share in West Bengal which has Mamtha Banerjee, Trinamool Congress’ chief as CM, who offered her resignation days back. The switch by the MLAs and the councilors came just days after the 2019 Lok Sabha election results gave this result.
“Like the elections were held in seven phases in West Bengal, joinings in BJP will also happen in seven phases. Today was just the first phase,” said BJP National General secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya at the joining ceremony.
