“Good Man Narendra Modi, BJP Also Called Me,” said Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay of his intention to join the BJP following his resignation as a high court judge

Following his last day of service as a high court judge, Justice Gangopadhyay informed reporters outside the court that he had mailed his letter of resignation to Chief Justice TS Sivagnanam of the Calcutta High Court, Chief Justice DY Chandrachud of the Indian Supreme Court, and President Droupadi Murmu. Justice Gangopadhyay disclosed his resignation plans on Sunday in an interview with the local news source, ABP Ananda.

At a news conference today at his Salt Lake mansion in Calcutta, he disclosed his intentions to enter politics in the future. He had not, up until now, confirmed his political allegiance or declared his intention to run in the next Lok Sabha elections.

He did, however, indicate that he would be willing to join well-known groups like the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the Indian National Congress, or the Bharatiya Janata Party.

He declared today that he would become a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party on March 7, citing the party’s nationalist commitment to opposing the ‘corrupt’ Trinamool Congress party. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also praised by him as a “good man.” In response to a question on who approached the BJP, he stated, “Both sides made an approach. The BJP approached me, and I approached the BJP as well.” He continued by saying that he hasn’t conducted any adjudication in the previous seven days and that BJP and he got in touch with each other over the last seven days only.

In response to a question concerning Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said, “A very good man.” He was extremely diligent. Making an effort to support the nation.” He clarified that his religious convictions were incompatible with the communist vision of a society without states and without religion. He blasted the “dynastic” tactics of India’s oldest party, the Congress, during his remarks. Again, he expressed his gratitude to the Trinamool Congress party for daring to ‘join the political field’. “In my opinion, the Trinamool Congress is not a legitimate political party. It’s the Jatra festival. It is rife with corruption. A few decent people join the party, but they frequently do not realise what kind of people it really is.”

The ‘inevitable breakup’ of the ruling Trinamool Congress party was another prophecy he made. “The party will soon come to an end; only a few arrests will be necessary. It’s not going to be a long celebration,” he cried. Crucially, he disclosed that the Bharatiya Janata Party had contacted him regarding his political debut, although he would not comment on any particulars of the encounter, such as the identities of the BJP leaders who attended. He did not say specifically if he intended to run in the next Lok Sabha elections.
