At a time when there are only five days left for the second phase of the Lok Sabha Elections, Congress in Silchar are facing a huge setback as hundreds quit party and join BJP.
Being fed up of Deb family centred party politics in the constituency, more than five hundred members belonging to the minority community have joined the saffron party.
Allegedly, enraged with autocracy of the family in power, District Congress’ Organising Secretary Sahin Laskar along with several other members have joined BJP.
In a function at Silchar BJP office, State President Ranjit Dass welcomed Laskar into the party.
On the other hand, in Sonai Constituency too, several Congress members joined BJP. Under the aegis of Kajidoh Gaon Panchayat’s Congress leader Rusina Begum, around five hundred members leave the party.
MLA Aminul Haque Laskar welcomed the members to the saffron party.
