Reportedly, 33 BJP MLAs are in touch with TMC, apart from this, BJP National Vice President Mukul Roy’s son Subhranshu also wants to join Trinamool.
After the resounding victory in West Bengal Assembly Election, TMC turncoats are lining up to return to the party. According to the reports, as many as 33 BJP MLAs who jumped the ship ahead of elections now want to go back to the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC). Of these, 13 were given tickets by the party. It is being claimed that 33 MLAs are in touch with TMC, apart from this, BJP National Vice President Mukul Roy’s son Subhranshu also wants to join Trinamool.
However, BJP spokesperson Shamik Bhattacharya has termed it a rumour. He said, “Those who are giving me the figure of 33, I am telling them the number of 72, because this claim is false.” The suspicion around Subhranshu joining the BJP had started when he had questioned the central government through one of his posts.
He wrote on Facebook that it is better to introspect rather than criticize the government elected by the people. However, Bhattacharya says that Subhranshu wrote this post in a fit of rage. Subhranshu Roy was given ticket by BJP from Bijpur, but he could not win.
TMC is not in a hurry, asks MLAs to wait
While the turncoats want to return to the TMC fold, the party does not want to hurry in the matter of re-inducting BJP MLAs. TMC MP Shukhendu Shekhar Rai said that the party will discuss the issue during a meeting at the party office on Saturday at 3 pm.
He said that a lot of questions will have to be answered before anyone is included. Like, the one who wants to come, why did he leave the party. Why does he want to return? It will also be seen whether this is a conspiracy of BJP or an attempt to infiltrate.
Only after getting answers to all such questions will the party decide whether to include anyone or not.
