Agartala (Tripura) [India], Mar 20 (ANI): Subal Bhowmik, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) state vice president, quit the party on Tuesday to join the Congress.
Speaking to ANI after joining the Congress, Bhowmik said: "I was in BJP for five years and before that, I was a part of Congress party for 35 years. This is like 'ghar wapasi' (returning home) for me."
Originally a Congressman, Bhowmik, who was an MLA from Sonamura Assembly constituency, had joined the BJP in 2014.
Speculations are rife that Bhowmik may contest the upcoming polls on a Congress ticket from Tripura (West). He is also likely to attend a public gathering in Agartala today which will see Congress chief Rahul Gandhi in attendance. (ANI)
