100 Left Front workers join Trinamool in Balurghat

BALURGHAT: In a major political development in South Dinajpur before the upcoming Parliamentary elections, 100 Left Front workers from different wards under Balurghat municipality joined Trinamool Congress on Tuesday afternoon, in presence of party candidate and popular theatre personality Arpita Ghosh.

Ghosh conducted a workers' conference in Balurghat for discussing a strategic plan before the polls, where she handed over the party flag to them. The newly joined workers were also welcomed by senior Trinamool leaders, including former PWD minister Shankar Chakraborty and Balurghat town party president Subhas Chaki.

According to a source, there was speculation that a group of Left Front workers, mainly from RSP, would join the ruling party. "The Left Front workers have joined Trinamool as they were impressed by the policy for people made by Mamata Banerjee. Our Chief Minister's policy has definitely geared up the development in Bengal. Their joining has proved that the general people trust Trinamool Congress despite fabricated speeches by different state and Central level BJP leaders against us. If this outward flow continues, Trinamool will do better in the district in the upcoming LS polls," Ghosh said.

Visibly overwhelmed after joining the new party, the Left Front workers said: "We are fortunate enough to join Trinamool and will surely do our task sincerely for the party's betterment from today onwards." Political observers feel this joining will definitely give an advantage to the ruling party.

"Some other workers from different political parties including BJP, Congress and Left Front are likely to join Trinamool soon," said an observer.

Former PWD minister Shankar Chakraborty said: "There is no doubt that this joining will make us stronger before the upcoming poll. We will surely have a positive reflection in the ballot box."
