BJP strength reduced in West Bengal Assembly from 77 to 70

Kolkata: In a further jolt to the Bengal BJP, Raiganj MLA Krishna Kalyani, who had quit the BJP on October 1, rejoined AITC on Wednesday, taking the total number of BJP MLAs down to 70 from 77 since the assembly elections.

“I have made a mistake and I have rectified it by coming back to the Trinamool Congress within six months of defecting,” Kalyani told mediapersons in Kolkata on Wednesday.
