Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s problems are constantly increasing ahead of this year’s assembly elections in West Bengal Assembly Election. Mamata Banerjee’s three rebel MLAs, including former West Bengal minister Rajib Banerjee, may join the BJP today after leaving the Trinamool Congress party. TMC rebel leaders Rajiv Banerjee, Vaishali Dalmiya (Baishali Dalmiya) and Prabir Ghoshal along with BJP leaders Mukul Roy and Kailash Vijayvargiya are arriving in Delhi this evening. These three people will meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and after that they can join the saffron party.
According to sources, Shah himself phoned Banerjee and invited him to join the BJP. First Home Minister Amit Shah was going on a two-day tour of West Bengal, but his tour was canceled due to the blast in Delhi. There rebel MLAs of TMC were believed to be joining the BJP. After the postponement of Shah’s Bengal tour, it is now reported that the three rebel MLAs of Mamta Banerjee are reaching Delhi by this evening. After this, around three o’clock this evening, these three can join BJP.
Let me tell you that one day earlier TMC rebel leader Rajiv Banerjee resigned as MLA. Earlier on January 22, he also resigned from Mamata Banerjee Cabinet of West Bengal. She was entrusted with the responsibility of the state forest minister by Mamta. Rajiv Banerjee, representing Domjur assembly constituency, met Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee and submitted his resignation. Banerjee, a two-time MLA, said, “I have resigned from the Legislative Assembly of the state assembly.
Trinamool Congress has suffered another setback before Banerjee’s resignation in the state assembly elections due this year. Earlier, West Bengal Minister of State for Youth and Sports Affairs Laxmi Ratan Shukla resigned from her post on January 5. Before Shukla’s resignation, state Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari left the party and joined the BJP. Elections to the 294-member Bengal Legislative Assembly are scheduled in April-May this year. Apart from the ministers, many Trinamool Congress MLAs have also left the ruling party including Sheelabhadra Dutta, Bishwajit Kundu, Deepali Biswas and Shukra Munda.
