West Bengal is turning out to be the state to watch out for as the political battle seems to be simmering post BJP’s new-found foothold in the state. Mukul Roy, BJP leader, has now claimed that 107 MLAs, majority of whom are from the Trinamool Congress (TMC) are all set to join BJP ‘very soon’.

He said that 107 MLAs belong mostly the the TMC, but a few are from Congress and CPIM. He also asserted that most people are sick of Mamata Banerjee’s rule and are fed up with the way things are functioning.

After dwindling electoral fortunes, Mamata Banerjee had hired Prashant Kishore to improve the image of her party and Kishore had recently announced that his aim was to get 5 lakh youngsters to join the party. 

Last month, there were speculations that TMC supremo Banerjee, spooked by BJP’s implausible inroads in West Bengal, had decided to hire services of renowned poll strategist Prashant Kishor almost two years ahead of the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections.

After reports confirming that poll strategist had agreed to work for TMC started doing the rounds, JD(U) had distanced itself from the Kishor. JD(U) had on June 7, disowned Kishor, merely eight months after inducting him as the party’s National Vice-President.

According to reports, however, Kishor is unlikely to be the face of TMC campaign in the state. His team is specifically looking into the reasons behind the shift of vote bank from Left to BJP and the region-specific reasons behind BJP’s vote share increase in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election.
