Kolkata : A day after hinting at the possibility of Mukul Roy joining their party, the BJP on Saturday said the process of the former Trinamool Congress leader’s inclusion is in progress.

“The final decision on the joining of Mukul Roy was not taken today (Saturday). I can say the process is in progress. Opinions of state (West Bengal) leaders and the unit as a whole were noted and accordingly, the central leadership will take the decision,” party’s National Secretary Rahul Sinha said, reports IANS.
