Mukul Roy finally joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and stuck to the theme of describing it as a secular party and refraining from attacking Mamata Banerjee, leaving it to Amit Shah to inject an element of surprise.

BJP president Shah was present at the party headquarters but did not turn up on the stage where Roy was showcased.

Sources said the party boss sought to be cautious, given the corruption scandals that hit Trinamool when Roy was a key figure in his erstwhile party and especially since Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made similar allegations the main theme of his campaign speeches in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat.
