Increasing the discomfort of state Congress, Arpita Chowdhury, wife of state Congress president Adhir Chowdhury said she was likely to join TMC soon.

Talking to The Indian Express, she said Adhir had abandoned her about three months ago and was helpless. “Adhir hardly comes home. I stay alone at my Shahid Surya Sen Road. He has not even kept in touch. I had to do something. So I have decided to join TMC,” Arpita said. Asked why she had chosen TMC she said that she had been inspired by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and would like to do some constructive work for people.
