Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s grand nephew Chandra Bose on Monday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
With the assembly polls in West Bengal round the corner, Chandra Bose is expected to be projected as the BJP’s prominent face in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) bastion.
Talking to the media prior to his meeting with BJP president Amit Shah, Chandra Bose accused the Congress of trying to wipe out the late freedom fighter’s ideology.
As per reports, Chandra Bose is likely to campaigning against TMC supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during the polls.
The BJP is hopeful of making a significant dent in TMC-ruled West Bengal, which is set to go to polls in May this year.
The TMC stormed to power in 2011, putting an end to the 34-year-long Left rule in West Bengal.
