In this regard, Gauta Roy has already been showcased and the issue has been forwarded to the hi-command”.
Ripun Bora also said, “As a party leader it will not be right thing for him to pass any comment since Gautam Roy has not officially joined BJP yet”. But one thing is clear, the congress state leaders are sure enough that Gautam Roy is going to leave the party very shortly to join BJP.
