After the Trinamool Congress registered a landslide victory in the West Bengal Elections this year, the turncoats who had quit the party to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) citing a gamut of reasons, seem now to be looking for reasons to make a comeback to the party.
The latest one among those is Sarala Murmu, who on Sunday said that she 'committed a mistake' by quitting the party and went on to promise to 'diligently' work for the party if accepted.
"I committed a mistake, and want Didi (Mamata Banerjee) to pardon me. If she does and accepts me, I will stay with her and work for the party diligently," she said.
It is pertinent to mention here that Murmu jumped ships in spite of making it to the electoral list. She was given a ticket to contest from the Malda district by the TMC, but she wanted to instead contest from Habibpur. She took this as a reason to switch to the BJP.
