New Delhi, Mar 12 (UNI/IBNS) Ending days of speculation, suspended Trinamool Congress MP Anupam Hazra on Tuesday joined BJP here in presence of senior party leader Kailash Vijayvargiya.

Hazra, who represents Bolpur SC reserved constituency, is likely to contest from the same seat.

The Trinamool leadership had expelled him in January along with another sitting MP Saumitra Khan.

In 2014, Hazra had defeated Marxist MP Ramchandra Dome by a margin of 2,36,112 votes and most of the votes is said to have come to him owing to the mass appeal of Mamata Banerjee.

Once a communist bastion, Bolpur was once represented by former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee seven times before the constituency was made reserved by delimitation.

According to sources, Hazra was a regular lawmaker to attend the House proceedings and his attendance was 88 per cent.

Congress MLA Dulal Chandra and CPI-M leader Khagen Murmu also joined the saffron Party.

Besides Vijayvargiya, who is BJP incharge of Bengal, former Union Minister Mukul Roy was also present on the occasion.
