With state BJP president Sukanta Majumdar by his side, Chakraborty said he is well aware of objections within the party to inducting TMC leaders.

"I am well aware of the objections. But, I would like to say that I am not a fool, and the same mistakes won't be repeated," he said.

Earlier, Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari claimed that the TMC government in West Bengal would not be able to complete its five-year term, and will be ousted by 2024.

Hitting back, the TMC said its MLAs are not up for sale.

"Such statements are an attempt to fool the people. There is no relation with reality. I think such comments would further fuel infighting within the BJP. TMC MLAs are not up for sale like BJP leaders," TMC's state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said.
