`Trinamool indulging in politics of defection`
Kolkata: With two party MLAs set to switch over to the Trinamool Congress next week, the Congress Thursday accused the former ally of resorting to the politics of defection and said it would boomerang on them.
"The politics of luring away MLAs by dangling promises of ministerial berths was not present in this state. This will boomerang on them (TMC)," WBPCC President Pradip Bhattacharya said.
His statement came in the backdrop of the decision by two Congress MLAs, Humanyun Kabir and Krishnendu Narayan Chowdhury, to join TMC.
Bhattacharya said the Trinamool Congress was trying to break up the Congress in West Bengal.
Humayun Kabir, an MLA from Rejinagar in Murshidabad district, had said yesterday that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had promised him a ministerial berth in a Cabinet reshuffle expected to be held on November 20.
