Subrata Mukherjee rejected Congress for TMC

Kolkata, 4th May : Sparking a spree of speculations, former city mayor and Congress state working president Subrata Mukherjee announced on Tuesday that he will be formally leaving the Congress and joining the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday, ahead of the municipal elections.

However, Mukherjee said he will reveal the reasons behind his decisions on Wednesday.

“I will reveal the reasons for leaving Congress after joining the TMC on Wednesday,” Mukherjee told reporters on Tuesday.

Eyebrows were already being raised in Congress circles at the way Mukherjee was conspicuous by his absence from Saturday’s media conference at the state Congress headquarters where another working president Pradip Bhattacharya announced the names of 88 Congress candidates.

The break-up of the the two parties has definitely weakened the case against the the Communist state government and even among Congress part workers, the dissent is clear about fielding 88 candidates and they feel this will lead to competition against TMC, and not against the CPI(M).
