State BJP president Rahul Sinha on Monday told reporters that several opposition members have joined the BJP earlier in the day.
“TMC councillor from Suri, footballer Swapan Sengupta and Congress councillor of Barrackpore Municipality Ramesh Shaw joined the party on Monday formally.
Haji Nasiruddin of Barrackpore, prominent figure of the locality, and his 300 supporters, too, have joined the party, a sign that we are gaining support of members from the minority as well,” Sinha told reporters during a press conference.
He added that at a forthcoming event on July 16, many political activists of TMC and Congress will join the BJP. He also hinted that the slain independent panchayat member Sagar Ghosh’s son, Hriday Ghosh, might also join the BJP on that day.
