Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], January 22 (ANI): Trinamool Congress MLA Baishali Dalmiya has been expelled from the party for her involvement "in anti-party activities", TMC sources said.

"Party knows its principles because I haven't received anything in writing about my expulsion. I have not received any phone. I got the information through news channels.

I will continue to do so," she said.

Asked if she will join the BJP, the MLA said her first motto is to serve the public.

"I am not leaving politics. I will continue to serve the public through politics."Rajib Banerjee, MLA from Domjur, has joined the league of leaders who have recently resigned from the TMC government. (ANI)
