Kolkata: Suspended heavyweight CPM leader Lakshman Seth is likely to join BJP and fight the Tamluk Lok Sabha constituency By-Poll on the saffron party’s ticket.
As per reports, Mr Seth had earlier met West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh and expressed his desire to join the party. Mr Ghosh during a BJP meet in September had said that the party high command will consider Mr. Seth’s request.
Speculation went souring after Mr Ghosh and Mr Seth were seen sharing the stage at a BJP meet in Haldia held on last month. However, Lakshman Seth accused in the Nandigram carnage is seen by many as detrimental to BJP’s image.
