Former TMC MP Dinesh Trivedi today joined BJP. He was inducted into the party by BJP President J P Nadda in New Delhi.
Talking to reporters on the occasion, Mr. Trivedi, without naming TMC, said, in that party, people are serving a family instead of serving the people of West Bengal.
He alleged that there are corruption and violence in the state under TMC rule.
Former Railways Minister, Mr Trivedi said, people have faith in the BJP that the party will protect the nation under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Welcoming him, Mr. Nadda said, the former TMC MP has left opportunism by resigning from the Rajya Sabha and has joined the BJP on ideological grounds. Last month, Mr Trivedi had resigned from the Rajya Sabha.
