Thiruvananthapuram: A. P. Abdullakutty on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.
He told reporters in New Delhi that both had invited him to the BJP.
He had to face expulsion from the CPM and later Congress for his praise for Mr Modi, first in 2009 when he was the chief minister of Gujarat for his development initiatives.

After the meetings in their parliament offices, he was cautious to the reporter’s queries saying he would let them know when he would join the BJP.
