BJP's Rajib Banerjee rejoins Trinamool

Wednesday 03rd November 2021 06:55 EDT

BJP leader and former minister in the Mamata Banerjee government Rajib Banerjee rejoined the ruling Trinamool Congress. Rajib was re-inducted into the party along with Ashish Das, a former BJP leader from Tripura, at a public meeting of the party's general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in the hill state. The meeting was attended by another new TMC inductee and in-charge of the party's affairs in the northeast, Sushmita Dev, and other senior leaders. Tripura is one of the states where the Mamate Banerjee-led party has set its eyes on as part of its expansion plans to create a platform for a larger national role with the TMC supremo having made her ambitions clear. The former minister had switched over to the saffron camp months ahead of the Assembly election in Bengal.
