KOLKATA: BJP’s Kaliaganj MLA Soumen Roy on Saturday joined Trinamool Congress in the presence of party general secretary Partha Chatterjee in Kolkata, effecting the first legislative wing defection in north Bengal and the fourth in the state, bringing down the saffron party’s tally of MLAs to 71.
Earlier, Mukul Roy, Tanmoy Ghosh and Biswajit Das had joined Trinamool despite efforts by Bengal BJP leaders to keep the party flock together. Soumen, a Mukul loyalist, had joined BJP after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls just like Bagda MLA Biswajit Das. After taking the TMC flag from Chatterjee, he apologised for leaving Trinamool.
“Even after I quit Trinamool, my mind and soul was with the party. I do not subscribe to the divisive ideology of BJP. I want to be a part of the development work Didi has taken up in north Bengal. The state’s culture doesn’t match with BJP’s culture,” he said.
