Kolkata : Former Union Railway Minister and former Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP Dinesh Trivedi has reached Delhi. There will be a membership of the party in the presence of National President JP Nadda at the BJP headquarters. State BJP sources have confirmed that Trivedi has informed about his membership of the party and he has gone to Delhi along with the state leadership.
A few days ago during the Rajya Sabha session, he had announced to leave TMC and said that he was upset with the culture of violence. He had severely accused Mamata Banerjee that she was being pressured to use abuses against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Trivedi had said that he was choking in TMC. However, he had not made his political stance clear since then and there was speculation that he might join the BJP. Now finally he has reached Delhi.
