NEW DELHI: Former Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy on Friday joined the BJP, in the presence of Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and party general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya.
“Without BJP, the Trinamool Congress could not establish itself. BJP is not a communal force, it is a secular force. In the near future, BJP will grab power in West Bengal,” said Roy at the press conference where the announcement was made.
Prasad echoed similar sentiments, saying that with “veteran political leader” Roy’s entry into the saffron party, the BJP will do “great things” in West Bengal.
Roy was once West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s right-hand man and TMC’s chief election manager. However, he recently fell out with Banerjee and in early October, resigned from all party posts and also gave up his membership of the Rajya Sabha.
But he had not specified his future course of action at the time.
West Bengal education minister Partha Chatterjee had referred to his resignation as “good riddance”.
Roy had recently met senior BJP leaders and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat during the latter’s visit to Kolkata.
