Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) leadership is yet to take any decision on the homecoming of former party leaders who switched over to the BJP ahead of the recently held assembly elections. Top Trinamool Congress sources told that Chief Minister and party president Mamata Banerjee will take a decision on the return of the Trinamool people who have gone to the BJP. Political experts believe that the party will return a very few leaders so that before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. A message can be given to the party workers that rebellion will not be tolerated.

A Trinamool leader, requesting anonymity, said, “Only the top leadership can take a final call on this issue,” he said, adding, “At this point we are battling the Kovid-19 pandemic and after Cyclone Yas. arranging relief operations. Several former MLAs, including Trinamool Congress leaders Dipendu Biswas and Sonali Guha, have written letters in the last few days expressing their regret for joining the BJP. He has expressed his desire to return to the Trinamool Congress. Sonali, once a close aide of Banerjee, made an emotional appeal on camera, demanding an apology from the Chief Minister.

Sonali, who was a four-time MLA from Satgachia in South 24 Parganas, wrote in a letter that just as a fish cannot live outside the water, similarly didi, ‘I will not be able to live without you. Speculation is also rife about the possible homecoming of one of the founders of Trinamool Congress, Mukul Roy, who is a Rajya Sabha member of the BJP. Recently, Mamta Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek went to a hospital in the city to know about Roy’s wife and spoke to her son.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also called Roy and inquired about his wife’s health. Roy is trying to quell speculations of a return to the Trinamool Congress, but the market for speculation is still hot as Banerjee said that Roy’s behavior is not so bad.

During the election campaign, Chief Minister Banerjee had called the rebel leaders Mir Jafar. Now the Trinamool Congress can selectively make the leaders return home.

Rajat Roy, a member of the Calcutta Research Group and a well-known political analyst, said that the aim would be to weaken the BJP organizationally but at the same time it would not make all the leaders return home so that the message of strictness would also be sent to the rebels. According to analysts, Trinamool Congress will adopt a mixed strategy of Congress and Left Front in this regard. While the Congress has often taken back its disgruntled leaders in the past, the Left has generally had a policy of not taking back the ‘dissidents and rebels’.

Trinamool Congress leaders, however, said, “The issue of withdrawal of leaders who left the party and joined the false brigade led by Modi and Shah will not come up in the organization meeting to be held tomorrow. He did not pay much attention to Abhishek Banerjee’s visit to a private hospital to inquire about the well being of BJP national vice president Mukul Roy’s wife and called it a courtesy call. Another top Trinamool Congress leader, on the condition of anonymity, said, “Any such meeting of the party usually does not discuss such issues where a large number of people are attending.
