The BJP state president Rajib Bhattacharjee accompanied by the minister Sushanta Chowdhury, BJP leader Amit Rakshit and other leaders welcomed them in the party by handing over the party flag with them.

Joining the BJP party, the former TMVC leader Asish Lal Singh said that he was impressed by the developmental works being carried out by the BJP at the centre and state as well. He blamed his former party TMC and its chief Mamata Banerjee for showing disinterest to the party functionary in Tripura, where the local leaders were never allowed to meet her even.
