Nothing Wrong In Joining BJP: Dinesh Trivedi

New Delhi: After his surprise resignation from the West Bengal ruling party Trinamool Congress on Friday, Dinesh Trivedi said he “did not need an invitation to join the BJP” and further said there was “nothing wrong” if he did end up in the saffron party.

“Dinest Trivedi does not need to wait for an invitation. They are all friends, not from now. The Prime Minister is a great friend. Amitbhai (Amit Shah) is a great friend for many, many years. I could have gone…I could have just walked in. And there is nothing wrong. Tomorrow if I join the BJP, there is nothing wrong in it,” the 70-year-old parliamentarian was quoted as saying in an interview to NDTV.

“If they (BJP) are welcoming me, which I heard, I am grateful to them. If everywhere people have accepted them, then they are doing something right for the country,” he said.

Trivedi also didn’t mince his words in taking a swipe at the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC. “We formed the party (Trinamool) together. Mamata Banerjee, Ajit Panja, Mukul Roy, myself. That was the soul of the party. We even struggled for 5,000 to 7,000 to 10,000 to buy a ticket to go to Delhi. Today that soul, that aatma is gone. If you give 100 crores to a consultant…On one hand you say you are a poor party and on the other, you give hundreds of crores to a consultant,” Trivedi said.

“Mamata Banerjee didn’t need a consultant to defeat the Left? Gandhi never required any consultant? I am not demeaning the importance of that but they can’t own the party; they have become owners of party, they have become bigger than the party,” he remarked.
