In a jolt to the CPI(M) ahead of next year's Assembly polls, CPI(M) MLA from Khandaghosh on Thursday joined the TMC accusing its leadership of failing to reach out to the masses.
Nabin Chandra Bag along with other CPI(M) leaders from Bardhaman district joined the TMC in the presence of senior ruling party leaders Partha Chatterjee and Arup Biswas.
“He has decided to join the TMC to become part of the developmental work ushered in by our party leader Mamata Banerjee,” Chatterjee said.
Bag said he was unhappy with the CPI(M)leadership as the party had completely lost touch with the masses.
The CPI(M) leadership is yet to officially react to the development.
