TMC’s Rajib Banerjee resigns as legislator, Amit Shah defers Bengal trip.

On a day that Union Home Minister Amit Shah was scheduled to visit West Bengal, Rajib Banerjee, Domjur MLA and former minister in the Mamata Banerjee Cabinet, resigned as member of the Legislative Assembly, triggering a fresh round of speculation that he could be joining the BJP.

Shah, however, cancelled his visit late Friday, with the Bengal BJP citing “unavoidable circumstances” and the “situation in Delhi”.

Bengal BJP leaders said they are trying for an alternative ‘national leader’ to attend the rally on Sunday at Dumurjola stadium in Howrah that Shah was to address.
