Trinamool Mp Cautions His Party As Another Tmc Rebel Returns From Bjp

Ex Salt Lake governor Sabyasachi Dutta rejoined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Thursday, approximately after 2 years of leaving to represent the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), causing a key leader of the party to warn the party against allowing members who abandoned ship before the polls to comeback.

TMC prominent Lok Sabha candidate Saugata Roy, without mentioning Dutta or any other politician stated that the person who criticized CM of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee in the previous assembly elections are rejoining the party, due to which the supporters are upset. He also added that it was reasonable for honest party activists to be frustrated to see people returning to join TMC after being a member of the opposing party.

Relative to the readmission of the five traitor representatives to the TMC since June this year, Dutta's homecoming on Thursday was a low-key affair. The small gathering took place in the state assembly chamber of parliamentary affairs minister Partha Chatterjee, just after governor Jagdeep Dhankhar swore in Mamata Banerjee and TMC members Jakir Hossain and Amirul Islam as lawmakers. They were victorious in the September 30 votes.

However, such instances provide the TMC with a chance to criticise the BJP, which used the Trinamool campaign's defections in the roll to the elections to suggest that the BJP has been inside reaching distance of control. However, Mamata Banerjee's group's achievement in the March-April assembly polls astounded her opponents. Her party received 213 seats, while the BJP received only 77.

TMC Bengal general secretary Kunal Ghosh, referring to BJP Secretary Sabyasachi Dutta said that the BJP should understand the impact of greeting someone despite huge fanfare and appointing him as a state committee secretary.

Ghosh rubbed it in even more. He asked that did the BJP believe it could win the Salt Lake City elections?  Individuals are returning who have recognised that they have no existence outside of the TMC and cannot survive without Mamata Banerjee. This will demonstrate to everyone that TMC is the sole power to be reckoned with. Ghosh also went on further adding that there is no other option.

Sabyasachi Dutta, a former legislator from the Rajarhat-New Town constituency in Kolkata's east, can not be reached for remark.

Dutta admitted at Thursday's gathering that leaving the TMC was a bad decision.

Dutta said that after some miscommunication with his coworkers, he made an impulsive decision to enter the BJP. Upon getting the TMC flag by Chatterjee, Dutta stated that he would genuinely represent the TMC in whichever job it assigns him. Firhad Hakim, the Transport Minister, was also attending.

In preparation for his homecoming to the TMC, Dutta slammed his previous employer, Bengal BJP former president Dilip Ghosh, for a remark on the Lakhimpur Kheri massacres in Uttar Pradesh.

Jay Prakash Majumdar, Bengal BJP deputy president, criticised Dutta for moving over, calling him opportunistic. Majumdar added that he most likely joined the BJP in search of rich prospects, only to discover that their government does not permit its supporters to acquire a chance.

Soumen Roy, a BJP member from Kaliaganj in north Bengal, entered the TMC on September 4. Many had gone behind him. Tanmay Ghosh, who acquired the Bishnupur seat in Bankura district, Biswajit Das, a congressman from Bagdah in North 24 Parganas district, and Mukul Roy, a former BJP national vice-president who occupies the Krishnanagar North seat in Nadia district, had all previously defected to the TMC.
