Amid speculation that he will rejoin the Trinamool Congress (TMC), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National Vice President Mukul Roy is holding a meeting with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday.

The meeting is underway at the Trinamool Congress Bhavan in Kolkata. TMC top brass including Abhishek Banerjee is present at the meeting.

Sources said Roy has been feeling suffocated in BJP.

Roy contested the 2021 West Bengal Assembly elections from Krishnangar Uttar constituency and defeated TMC candidate actor Koushani Mukherjee.

Roy's meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee comes a month after the TMC secured a landslide victory in the West Bengal assembly elections.

Mukul Roy, a founding member of TMC, had changed camps and joined BJP in November 2017.

With politician Jitin Prasad leaving Congress in Uttar Pradesh to join the BJP, and now Roy going back to TMC, political controversies are flaring up across India. While politicians are shifting from one political party to another, citizens are shifting in their seats.

Many have taken to Twitter to predict what might happen and the consequences it might lead to.

Here's what the discussion looks like on Twitter. Have a look.
