Now, BJP plans a system to “investigate” defectors | India News


CALCUTTA: Amid the euphoria that the BJP is taking a toll on the dissent-stricken TMC, Union Interior Minister Amit Shah asked the party’s state machinery on Sunday to establish a system to “investigate” potential defectors before letting them in, reports Rohit Khanna. The decision was apparently prompted by Pandaveswar MLA Jitendra Tiwari doing a flip-flop within 24 hours of resigning from the main TMC membership.
Shah ordered the Bengal unit to send details of all “applicants” for BJP membership to the five state-appointed observers. Based on comments from party workers, the observers would send their reports to the BJP headquarters in Delhi for approval.
