Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress lost five MLAs in 24 hours but managed a save when one of them, Jitendra Tiwari, declared he was back in the party. Today's big exits were MLAs Shilbhadra Dutta and Banasree Maiti, as the party bleeds rebels looking to cross over to the BJP ahead of polls four months away. Jitendra Tiwari and Suvendu Adhikari quit yesterday. This evening, Jitendra Tiwari declared his resignation a "mistake". After meeting with a senior leader and state minister, he told reporters: "I never said anything about Didi (Mamata Banerjee) or joining BJP".
