Migration Ahead? ‘Missing’ BJP MLAs At Suvendu Adhikari’s Meet Raises Concern
Kolkata: A section of its MLAs stayed away from Suvendu Adhikari’s meeting with the Governor. Adhikari — who is also the Leader of Opposition in the Bengal Assembly — met Governor Jagdeep Dhankar on Monday evening with a delegation of party MLAs.
The meeting was meant to apprise the Governor of “several inappropriate incidents happening in Bengal and discuss other important matters”.
But with 24 of the BJP’s 74 MLAs missed the meeting.
Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Sudip Banerjee on Monday asked the leader of opposition in the West Bengal legislative assembly to focus on the missing MLAs from his own party before thinking about introducing an anti-defection law.
Speculations arose after the Trinamool Congress (TMC) asked the BJP about the rest of the 24 MLAs who were not present at Adhikari’s meeting with the Bengal governor. Reports of other leaders who had left the TMC to join the BJP ahead of polls returning to TMC surfaced following Mukul Roy’s return to the TMC.
