Bengal's lone Congress MLA joins TMC
The lone Congress MLA in West Bengal Assembly, Bayron Biswas, on Monday (May 29) jumped ship and formally joined the TMC, during the ruling party’s ongoing mass outreach campaign ‘Trainamook eh Nabojowaar’ (New wave in Trinamool).
The Congress MLA from the minority-dominated Sagardighi constituency in Murshidabad, switched over to the TMC in the presence of the ruling party’s national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in Paschim Medinipur district.
The AITC tweeted: “Today, during the ongoing #JonoSanjogYatra in the presence of Shri @abhishekaitc, INC MLA from Sagardighi Bayron Biswas joined us. We wholeheartedly welcome him to the Trinamool Congress family!”
“To strengthen your resolve to fight against the divisive and discriminatory politics of BJP, you have chosen the right platform. Together, we will win!”, the tweet further said.

Biswas had won the Sagardighi seat on a Congress ticket in a bypoll held earlier this year, thus giving the grand old party a representation in the state assembly. The Congress had failed to open its account in the 2021 state assembly elections.
