In another jolt to the western BJP, TMC apostate Rajib Banerjee is set to return to the ruling party today during the general meeting of TMC Secretary General Abhishek Banerjee in Tripura, reports ANI news agency. This comes days after Banerjee stirred up the feathers by praising Mamata Banerjee for her victory in the by-election in Bhabanipur.
The BJP’s Bengal unit was upset about Banerjee being named “Special Advocate” of the BJP’s national executive despite his criticism of the BJP’s opposition to Mamata Banerjee and distanced himself from the party after its defeat in the Domjur assembly seat in Howrah in March and April. Polls. Banerjee has won the seat twice since 2011, when the Transitional Military Council first took power.
