Balurghat: Before Lok Sabha election 2019, more than eight hundreds (800) women worker and supporters have shifted to Trinamool Congress from Congress, Left and BJP. South Dinajpur district president Biplab Mitra has welcomed them at a party programme in their party office.
Women of four hundreds families from Bolla Panchayat have shifted to Trinamool Congress who were in Congress, RSP or CPM or active members of BJP. Pinki Orao, one among the women said that her family was in Congress.
Following the tradition, she was also in Congress. After constantly losing the freedom of work, the involvement is not there. Several interventions are there if they wants to do something.
The shifted people have said that they are inspired by TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee. So they are hoping for wide chance of work for the people. So specifically women supporters are showing interest to join TMC.
