Five former Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in New Delhi after meeting Union home minister Amit Shah on Saturday.
The leaders include Rajib Banerjee, Baishali Dalmiya, Prabir Ghoshal, Rathin Chakraborti and Rudranil Ghosh.
“Former TMC leaders Mr. Rajib Banerjee, Ms. Baishali Dalmiya, Mr. Prabir Ghoshal, Mr. Rathin Chakraborti and Mr. Rudranil Ghosh joined BJP today in New Delhi,” Amit Shah tweeted.
“I am sure their induction will further strengthen BJP’s fight for Sonar Bangla,” Shah added.
Rajib Banerjee said, “Starting a new journey for a better Bengal.”
Suvendu Adhikari who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) welcomed all former TMC leaders into the saffron party.
“Heartiest WELCOME to former @AITCofficial leaders Mr. Rajib Banerjee, Ms. Baishali Dalmiya, Mr. Prabir Ghoshal, Mr. Rathin Chakraborti, and Mr. Rudranil Ghosh who joined @BJP4India today in the presence of Shri @AmitShah Ji, Shri @KailashOnline Ji, and Shri @MukulR_Official Ji,” Adhikari tweeted.
“Now that they have exited the “Private Company” I am sure they will enjoy working in a free and democratic atmosphere; where all Karyakartas work as one and everyone is honoured and respected. It’s a pleasure to have them on our side as we continue our fight for #AmarSonarBangla,” he added.
