Behrampore: One more Bengal Congress MLA has switched over to the ruling Trinamool and this has happened in the state Congress president Adhir Ranjan Choudhury’s home district Murshidabad.

Congress Khargram Assembly constituency MLA Ashish Marjit joined Trinamool during an Iftar party organised at Nagar this evening. Trinamool Murshidabad in-charge and state transport minister Suvendu Adhikari handed over the Trinamool flag to Marjit.

On switching over to Trinamool, Marjit said that he has done so as no development of Khargram and Murshidabad is possible without the support of the ruling party.

Majit is the 10th Congress MLA who has switched over to Trinamool since winning the 2016 state Assembly poll.
