The reason behind Mukul’s return is his neglect in the BJP for a long time. As the Leader of the Opposition in Bengal, his name was not forwarded and the command was handed over to Suvendu Adhikari. Speculation of Roy joining TMC had only intensified after he won from Krishnanagar South in the West Bengal Assembly elections. Roy is not the only one among those veterans who left their party and joined BJP. There is a long list of such leaders. In the last few years, many senior Congress leaders left the party and joined BJP. SM Krishna was the External Affairs Minister in the UPA government, was the Energy Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia And the name of Rao Inderjit Singh, who was the textile minister, is prominent among them.
Mukul Roy joins TMC: Big blow to BJP in Bengal, Mukul Roy will join TMC, ‘ghar wapsi’ after 4 yearsTo be honest, the leaders of other parties started turning towards the BJP from 2014 itself. Before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, most political pundits had sensed that the UPA was not going to make a comeback. This increased the attractiveness of NDA.
A few exceptions…It is a different matter that the leaders who changed party did not get any special ‘bhav’ in BJP. In exception we can place Himanta Biswa Sarma. Sarma, a veteran Assam Congress leader, had joined the BJP a year after the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. When the BJP government was formed in Assam in 2016, he was made a cabinet minister. After the recent assembly elections, when the BJP government was again formed in the state, Modi and Shah handed over the CM post to Sarma, expressing their confidence. Rita Bahuguna Joshi is another such name. While in the Congress, Rita Bahuguna Joshi took charge of the All India Mahila Congress and the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee. She joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on 20 October 2016. He got a place in the cabinet of Yogi government. But most are disappointed…Of course, the movement of leaders in political parties during the election season is not new. However, after the UPA’s defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, a large number of veteran leaders from other parties, especially the Congress, have joined the BJP. However, he did not get things according to his ‘stature’. Take SM Krishna, who was the Foreign Minister. After switching from Congress to BJP, he has not got any major responsibility. He is living almost in oblivion.
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Narayan Rane and the then Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil had also resigned to join the BJP in 2019. It is a different matter that both of them did not get any major role.
Jyotiraditya Scindia has been counted among the future leaders of Congress. He has also been a Union Minister in the past. During the tenure of UPA, he has served as Minister of Power and Minister of State for Information Technology. Jyotiraditya Scindia had joined the BJP in March last year. In this episode, his dear friend on Wednesday Jitin Prasad Has also joined BJP. Both were considered very close to former Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Jyotiraditya Scindia has not been given any ‘notable’ responsibility so far.
Mukul Roy Joining TMC: Mukul’s homecoming, Mamta said – welcome to loved ones, not those who betrayThe face of Congress in Gujarat and the Chief Minister of the state Shankar Singh Vaghela Was also associated with BJP in 2019. But, he did not play any major role. There are reports that Vaghela may return to the Congress again. In the last assembly elections, he left the Congress after a rift with the party over the post of CM.
The list doesn’t end here…Virendra Singh, Ashok Tanwar, Ranjit Singh, Vijay Bahuguna, Satpal Maharaj, Alpesh Thakor and not knowing how many names have left Congress and joined BJP. An analysis of MLAs who switched parties and re-contested from 2016 to 2020 found that the BJP benefited the most. Whereas the Congress left most of the MLAs who joined the other party.
The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) analyzed the election affidavits of 443 MLAs and MPs. These were leaders who changed parties in the last five years and contested again. The report found that out of 405 MLAs from states who left the party and switched parties, 42 per cent were from the Congress. Whereas BJP came second with 4.4 per cent.
