Kolkata: Finally former Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chatterjee and his close friend Baisakhi Banerjee joined the BJP at the party headquarters in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Before joining, the two met BJP leaders Arvind Menon and Mukul Roy. While Sovan is the MLA from Behala East assembly constituency, Baisakhi was a former TMC leader and headed its education cell.
 
Actress-cum-TMC leader Debashree Roy was also present at the BJP headquarters but was not seen on the dais even as Chatterjee and Banerjee were officially inducted into the party.

“I am happy to join the BJP as I believe in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s and Amit Shah’s determination in making a strong India,” Chatterjee said.In November last year, Chatterjee, once a close aide of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, resigned as Kolkata Mayor over alleged differences with her.
