BJP Cracks, Hriiday Joins TMC


Suri: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) suffered a major blow on Sunday as many of its leaders from Birbhum including Hriday Ghosh has abandoned BJP and joined hands with arch rival Trinamool Congress. The breakaway faction under Nimai Das has vented their anger on BJP by terming it the party of affluent class.

The action is believed to have jolted BJP, which has been expecting a gain in the 2016 Bidhan Sabha polls in West Bengal. Although the Sattor woman has not yet left the party and many believed that it was Roopa Ganguly who persuaded her to stay with BJP.
