BJP MLA Biswajit Das today joined the ruling Trinamool Congress in Bengal, becoming the third lawmaker to return since Mamata Banerjee’s big victory in the April-May state polls.
Biswajit Das had ditched the Trinamool Congress to shift to the BJP before the election.
But he has now joined the reverse tide from BJP to Mamata Banerjee’s party, like many others who had switched.
Tanmay Ghosh, another MLA who had moved to the BJP and won, returned to the Trinamool on Monday.
The biggest homecoming was that of Mukul Roy, the BJP’s first import in Bengal, who returned to the Trinamool in June after four years.
With the latest exit, the BJP’s strength in the assembly is down to 72. The BJP won 77 seats in the election.
