Tripura BJP vice president Subal Bhowmik joins Congress

News Agencies | Updated on: 20 March 2019, 9:55 IST

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.
