Suvendu Adhikari and Mukul Roy are two former TMC leaders who were caught on tape while taking bribes; they joined the BJP in December 2020.
Former TMC leader Mukul Roy is also among the accused in the infamous Sarada Chit Fund scam. Mr. Roy, who quit the TMC in 2017, joined the BJP on Nov. 3, 2017. In 2016, the BJP in West Bengal had accused these leaders after the Narada Sting operation and posted the video on the party's social media accounts.
Ever since posts about the BJP welcoming the very people it accused as corrupt started to surface online, some netizens claimed that the BJP has now deleted the video uploaded in 2016. The BJP has not yet officially responded to the latest developments questioning the party's decision to welcome Mukul Roy and Suvendu Adhikari.
