On this occasion, Ravishankar Prasad, who was present on the forum said that the experience of Mukul Roy will benefit the party. Prasad said Mukul Roy was the founding member of the Trinamool Congress and he played a key role in bringing Trinamool Congress to power. Roy effectively fought against the excesses released during the 30-year rule of CPI (M) and at that time courageously fought to end the CPI (M) terrorism. He said that BJP is expanding and our area is growing. Today, we are the Chief Minister of our party in 13 states and our Deputy Chief Minister in five states. Our government is at the center. Big and experienced leader like Mukul Roy will get the benefit of joining the BJP. Mukul Roy’s coming in BJP will help in the expansion of the organization and we will expand in Bengal. ‘ Gujarat Opinion Poll 2017
It is notable that Mukul Roy, who was part of the establishment of the TMC together with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has been a union minister and a member of Rajya Sabha in the UPA government. Mukul Roy’s speculation about joining the BJP was going on for a long time. His resignation from the Rajya Sabha last month was approved last month.

On this occasion, Mukul Roy said that I have full faith that without the support of the BJP Trinamool Congress could not come to power in Bengal. In 1998, he contested the Lok Sabha election with BJP, becoming a coalition partner of the Trinamool NDA in 1999 and Mamta Jee became a minister in the Vajpayee government. He said that BJP is not communal, but secular, and in coming time, he will come to power in Bengal.
