“I ask Mallick Babu to persuade even one booth president to join his party, and I’ll accept his claim. At least 50 of TMC’s MLAs will join the BJP next month,” he said.

Mallick on Tuesday claimed MLAs who left the TMC want to rejoin the party before Assembly elections.

“Six-seven MPs will immediately join TMC within the first week of May, before the elections. Even the MLAs who left us, have queued up for rejoining. Tushar Babu, the MLA from Bankura have rejoined yesterday,” Mallick had said.
