Wednesday 26th June 2019 06:53 EDT

In yet another wave of TMC migration to BJP, a legislator from Mamata Banerjee's camp jumped ship to join the saffron party last week. TMC MLA from Bongaon Biswajit Das joined BJP in New Delhi in the presence of party's West Bengal leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya and Mukul Roy. Along with Biswajit Das, 12 TMC councillors and Congress spokesperson Prasanjeet Ghosh also joined the BJP. This comes a day after another TMC MLA - Noapara legislator Sunil Singh, along with the 15 TMC councillors and another Congress councillor, had joined the BJP. Leaders, including MLAs and MPs, from various parties in West Bengal, have been joining the saffron party for the past several months. BJP leader Vijayvargiya alleged that under the leadership of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, democracy had vanished from the state.
