Ghar wapsi for Arjun Singh? Bengal BJP MP meets TMC’s Abhishek Banerjee

/


Recent cryptic tweets by BJP MP from West Bengal, Arjun Singh, have given rise to speculation that he is disgruntled with the party and that he is likely to return to the Trinamool Congress.

Arjun Singh left for Kolkata to meet TMC General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee at his Camac street office.

Sources said that the BJP leadership, both central and state, is in touch with Singh to placate him and several phone calls have been made in this regard.

District TMC leaders of North 24 Pargana gathered at Abhishek Banerjee’s office. Bengal Minister Jyotipriya Mallik, district president Partha Bhowmik were also there.

When asked about Arjun Singh, Jyotipriya Mallik said, “It is a moral victory of our party. If everyone comes back to the party under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee, we will welcome them”.

As per TMC sources, Singh has been in talks with the party for the last six months. It was only in the last few weeks that he started speaking out against the BJP-led central government over the jute issue.

Earlier, Singh had slammed the West Bengal BJP leadership for not allowing him to work properly despite holding a senior position in the party.

Singh’s statement came after the Centre announced its decision to withdraw the notification capping jute prices, a demand he has been pressing for in the last few days.

Although Arjun Singh started his political career with the Congress, winning the Bhatpara Municipality Election as councillor, his entry to the state Assembly was with the Trinamool in 2001, when he defeated CPI(M) candidate Ramprasad Kundu.

He joined the BJP in 2019 before the Lok Sabha elections and contested for the Barrackpore seat as a party candidate and won.
