Blow for Assam Congress as ex-chief joins TMC

IndiaTimes Sunday, 17 April 2022
Congress in Assam suffered a setback on Sunday when its former PCC president, minister and Rajya Sabha MP Ripun Bora joined Trinamool Congress in Kolkata, hours after sending a two-page resignation to party chief Sonia Gandhi. Bengal CM and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee now has three key politicians in the Northeast—Bora, former Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma and Rajya Sabha MP Sushmita Dev—to steer the party through the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and state polls in the region.

Kolkata vlog: One day in the city of joy | Spots to hit in Kolkata | Oneindia News*Vlog

Kolkata, or what it’s famously known as the city of joy is built of culture, tradition, and soul. It’s a place where one can see colonial-era structures and modern developments overlapping. The British called it Calcutta, but it was always called Kolkata in Bengali. Kolkata has its own charm and never fails to delight visitors. I can, fortunately, call this city my home. So, I headed back to Kolkata during the time of Pujo and now I want everyone to join me as I spend one day just acting like a tourist in my city of joy. #Kolkata #CityOfJoy #KolkataVlog
