After the ceremony, he met party president Amit Shah and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal for photo-ops.

In 1998, when the TMC fought the polls for the first time, it was with the support of the BJP, and again in 1999, it was a part of the NDA and joined the government of Atal Behari Vajpayee."

Roy further added that, "I’m proud to work under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, and I believe that the BJP is secular. The people of Bengal are looking for an alternative and the BJP will soon be in power in the State as well."
