Kolkata: Though Bhaichung is yet to spell out his next course of action, it is highly possible that he could be roped in by the saffron party. Bhaichung’s luck in politics had not been successful. He was fielded twice by the Trinamool Congress, once in 2014 Lok Sabha elections and another time at 2016 Assembly election but on the occasions he lost.
Bengal BJP leader Rahul sinha said on Monday that if Bhaichung wants to join BJP then obviously welcomed. Rahul Sinha also added that his decision to quit is welcomed because no body wants go with ‘Kalighattantra’.
Icon Bhaichung Bhutia resigned from all posts, official and political, of the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC), expressing desire to work for his home state Sikkim.
With the Sikkim Assembly election scheduled along with 2019 general elections, chances are he might play an active role in the polls. The Sikkim BJP and the opposition party- Sikkim Krantikari Morcha have already sent feelers inviting Bhutia to join their parties.
