Suvendu Adhikari resigns as TMC MLA; Leader expected to join BJP soon?

In a massive jolt to All India Trinamool Congress party, before the West Bengal Assembly Elections, Suvendu Adhikari has also resigned from the MLA’s post. He first quit from the Cabinet Ministry and then the MLA’s post. Adhikari had even stepped down as Minister of Transport, Irrigation and Waterways on the 27th of November.

Sources say that Suvendu Adhikari may join the Bhartiya Janata Party soon. Reacting to this rumour, BJP’s Mukul Roy welcomed it saying that ‘Will welcome him if he joins BJP. TMC cadre feeling suffocated’. Adhikari’s resignation decision, ahead of Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit, comes in a surprise for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’.
