Kolkata, July 13: In a major set back to West Bengal government, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader Mukul Roy on Saturday claimed that as many as 107 Members of Legislative Assembly, including those belonging to the Communist Party (Marxist), Congress and Trinamool Congress are set to join the BJP.
"107 West Bengal MLAs from CPM, Congress and TMC will join BJP. We have their list prepared and they are in contact with us," Roy was quoted as saying by ANI.
The development comes barely two months after over 50-60 TMC councillors and 2 MLAs (one from CPM) joined the BJP in the presence of senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya.
