Blow for Cong: MLA joins BJP

In yet another blow to the poll-hit Congress in Assam, a sitting legislator has joined BJP on Thursday. He is none other than Mansing Rongpi who deserted the opposition party much to the delight of the ruling BJP. With this, the strength of the main opposition party has gone down to 25 while BJP has won yet another seat. The Karbi political leader was believed to have been unhappy with the party leadership and during the last couple of months he was in close touch with BJP leaders who finally gave him the green signal to join the ruling party.
