Agartala, July 30: The joining of the saffron party by the six MLAs, who resigned from Trimool Congress and voted in favor of NDA candidate in presidential election Ramth Kovind, is hanging in the balance. According to party sources question pertaining to their joining will be settled after they will meet the party president Amit Shah on August 2 in
Delhi.
BJP general secretary in-charge of the Northeast Ram Madhab, Fince Minister of Assam and convener of Northeast Democratic Alliance (NEDA) Himanta Biswa Sharma, state president of the party Biplab Deb and party prabhari Sunil Deo Dhar also likely to remain present in the meeting.
It is learnt that the joining process is getting delayed due to some formalities and procedures in the joining process.
The BJP had proposed to carry out the joining ceremony at its head quarter in Delhi in presence of central leaders. However, the sextet is interested in organizing their joining ceremony through a big rally at Agartala.
Speaking to media persons Ashis Saha, MLA and former president of the Trimool Congress said “If the MLA’s join in Delhi what will happen to their thousands of followers. All of us will join BJP to
gether.”
There was a general impression that the joining process will be completed by the first week of August but that too became uncertain, following the announcement of another program by the BJP state committee.
The Jajati Morcha, the tribal wing of the BJP, has decided to hold a big rally at Agartala on August 9 to display their growing popularity. The party president Biplab Deb said that over ten thousand people would attend the program.
However, a state leader of the BJP said that officially these MLA’s had not yet joined BJP. So, if they organize a rally with a purpose of joining the BJP then there exists no reason for clash between the two programs, he said.
