“In TMC there are post holders from other political parties. Anti defection law in West Bengal is necessary as those willing to defect to any other party must abide by the law. As a leader of opposition it is my duty to abide by law,” stated Suvendu adding that before he took primary membership of Bhartiya Janata Party he had left all the posts from the ruling Trinamool Congress.
