This had triggered speculations of him joining the TMC. However, following the meeting, Swamy rubbished all speculations. “I was already with her (Mamata). There is no need for me to join the party,” he told reporters.

Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader wrote: "Of the all the politicians I have met or worked with, Mamata Banerjee ranks with JP, Morarji Desai, Rajiv Gandhi, Chandrashekhar, and P V Narasimha Rao who meant what they said and said what they meant.
