Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed that 40 Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLAs are in touch with him and that they would leave Trinamool Congress party once BJP won the Lok Sabha elections. He told these words while addressing a rally in Serampore in West Bengal.
PM Modi said after May 23, once the Lok Sabha results are announced, the lotus would bloom everywhere. “Didi (Mamata Banerjee), on May 23 when the results will come, lotus will bloom everywhere and your MLAs will leave you. Even today, Didi, 40 of your MLAs are in contact with me,” PM Modi said.
Last month, BJP leader Arjun Singh, who switched parties from Trinamool Congress party had also made similar claims. He had said that around 100 Trinamool Congress MLAs would transfer themselves to BJP soon. He told, “Around 100 legislators from the ruling party are set to join the BJP. They are in touch with the BJP leaders on a regular basis. Some will join before the elections, the rest after”.
