Balurghat (WB): Trinamool Congress on Thursday
claimed that the party`s strength in the Rajya Sabha has gone
upto three with the lone JMM MP from Jharkhand Kanwar Deep
Singh joining it.
"Singh, the lone Rajya Sabha MP from JMM in Jharkhand,
has written to the RS chairman Hamid Ansari requesting him
that he should be treated as an All India Trinamool Congress
member. His prayer was granted by the RS chairman last week,"
Union minister and Trinamool leader Mukul Roy told newsmen.
However, Singh declined to comment on the issue. Sources
close to him in Ranchi said he would give a statement some
time next week.

Mukul Roy and Swapan Sadhan Basu are the two Trinamool
Congress members in the Upper House.
