KOLKATA: Tearing into traditional Congress bastion Murshidabad, Trinamool Congress tasted sucess yet again by capturing Murshidabad town municipality, with 12 Congress councillors including chairman Biplab Chakraborty and vice chairman Shahida Bibi joining the Trinamool on Wednesday.
The councillors formally joined the TMC at Trinamool Bhavan here on Wednesday. Out of the 16 seat municipality, Trinamool is now in control single handedly.
The ruling party has one by one taken over all but one municipalities in the Congress stronghold district.
Kandi, the only non Trinamool municipality in the district may also soon move towards the ruling party.
