Kolkata, 6 December: The lone Samajwadi party MLA Chand Mohammad from Bhagabangola in Murshidabad today joined the TMC along with his supporters. After the Congress MLA from Shantipur Ajoy Dey joined the Trinamul Congress, it is now the turn of a Left Front MLA to join the party.
Since he is the lone MLA who has merged with the Trinamul Congress, he won’t have to tender his resignation to the Assembly speaker Biman Banerjee.
Trinamul’s all India general secretary Mukul Roy today said that Chand Mohammad had earlier written to the Trinamul supremo that he wanted to join the party. Mr Roy also said that after the merger, there is no MLA from the Samajwadi party in the state. sns
