KOLKATA: A former Trinamool Congress minister who was expelled from the party for making 'anti-Mamata' remarks, joined Congress here on Monday.

Former animal resource development minister Humayun Kabir returned back to Congress, which he left in 2012, in the presence of Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee chief and Murshidabad MP Adheer Ranjan Chaudhury, whose former 'fort' of Murshidabad was recently 'conquered' by the ruling party through crossing of floor by councilors in several municipalities.

"Our long-time fellow party man Humayun has returned back. Also, two elected gram panchayat chiefs have also joined us. However, from tomorrow only Trinamool will start threatening them, the PCC chief said during a press meet.

Humayun Kabir was expelled in February 2015 after he said Mamata Banerjee was 'trying to make her nephew Abhishek Banerjee the king'. This did not go down well with the Trinaoom leadership and Kabir was expelled.
