Trinamool Congress president Jyotipriya Mallick has claimed that six to seven members of BJP want to join AITMC immediately and those TMC members who have already joined BJP are all set to come back
Calcutta: At a time when Trinamool Congress (AITMC) MLAs and MPs are leaving the party and joining BJP, North 24 Parganas Minister of State, Trinamool Congress President Jyotipriya Mallick today claimed that six to seven MPs of BJP would join Trinamool Congress at once.
He said that there can be no question of dividing the Trinamool Congress. Six to seven members of the BJP want to join our party. They will join in the first week of May. He said, ‘Some can join before the election and our party MLAs who went to BJP are standing in the queue to return.’
The BJP, on the other hand, has rejected Mallick’s claim. BJP leader Shyamak Bhattacharya said that Trinamool Congress leaders are making such statements to keep the party united whereas Arjun Singh said that they have lost their mental balance.
