“A big BJP leader is set to join TMC”: Firhad Hakim

News Desk: Senior TMC leader Firhad Hakim, on Thursday, said that a big leader from the saffron party is set to join them. He also said that BJP will disintegrate in West Bengal soon.

He said “TMC is not inducting BJP leaders indiscriminately. We are checking the antecedents, track record and image of each BJP leader who has made overtures to TMC leaders and is deciding on his or her appeal after due deliberation”

“The process of returning has only started. Wait for a few more days. A big time BJP leader is all set to join our party … BJP will disintegrate in West Bengal” he added.

Reacting to Hakim’s comments, BJP spokesperson Shamik Bhattacharya said “TMC should think about ethics and ideology before trying to poach BJP leaders. Those not interested in power and position, but love BJP will not leave”

Newly appointed BJP state president Sukanta Majumder appealed “Don’t take any decision which will weaken the fight for people’s democratic rights in Bengal”
