Speaking on the occasion, Pandey said that the former union minister's decision to join the BJP will boost his party's electoral prospects in Vaishali district and strengthen the cadre throughout Bihar.

He also sang paeans of the Gujarat Chief Minister and said that the country needed his service as the next prime minister to usher in good governance and restore faith of the people in political leadership, besides strengthen weakened economy and security.

Both were expelled by the Congress charging them for indulging in anti-party activities by way of meeting the Gujarat Chief Minister.
