A popular Bangladeshi actress on Wednesday formally joined the BJP in the presence of the state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh. Actress Anju Ghosh, when asked about her current citizenship status, did not reply to reporters’ questions.
The development has prompted Twitterati to incessantly troll Home Minister Amit Shah with many asking if he has not set his sight on Bangladesh in a bid to form a BJP government in India’s neighbouring country.

Reacting to a foreigner’s induction in the BJP, CPI-M leader Md Salim wrote on Twitter, “Will her name be there in NRC? Is she also a termite as per @AmitShah’s claims? Will Ajay Bisht campaign against her in West Bengal assembly elections?
Don’t know who’s more shameless, BJP leaders or its supporters!”
Salim wasn’t the only one taking a potshot at Amit Shah on the issue. Twitter exploded with jokes and memes with the newly-appointed Home Minister of India facing merciless trolling.
Mota bhai is forming govt in Bangladesh too.

Two months ago, the MHA had cancelled another Bangladeshi actor Ferdous Ahmed’s business visa and he was instructed to immediately leave the country after he was seen campaigning for the Trinamool Congress.
