Silchar, Oct 1: Over 30 cadres from BJP and Congress from different Gaon Panchayats and blocks of Cachar district joined the All India Trinamool Congress on Friday in the presence of Sushmita Dev, the new AITC Rajya Sabha MP from West Bengal.

Anadi Bhattacharjee, who was in charge of the BJP Social Media cell alleged that while he and others in the saffron camp had toiled hard for the party at the grassroots, the party appeared to drift away from its core principles in recent times. "As a dedicated foot soldier of the party, I have worked for over two decades and gave my best. But, the BJP of today is more of a Congress oriented BJP which is largely alien to us who had worked for the party with our sweat and toil. We feel increasingly deprived. Also, the youths of Barak Valley are being deprived of government jobs against which we will raise our voice under the leadership of madam Sushmita Dev."

Reacting to the developments, Sushmita Dev said, " I am happy to see the increasing trust people here in Silchar are investing upon the AITC led by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee." In the present-day political scenario in the state and across the country, the dictatorship exhibited by the BJP is detrimental for the public interest. No one talks about mass welfare and development which is why around 34 youths have decided to join us and I am happy to welcome them to the AITC family. I assure them and people at large that together we will continue to work for the people."

On being asked whether the AITC leadership is taking steps to form the Assam state committee, Sushmita said, "the demographic pattern of the state is being analysed by the party leadership and accordingly, they would decide on when and how to form the state committee."
