The Kerala leader, Abdullakutty, joined the BJP in the presence of working party president JP Nadda.

Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) had expelled Abdullakutty earlier this month for praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Facebook.

"The BJP's landslide victory in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha elections is the affirmation of the people's faith in Modi's vision and policies," read the social media post that got him into trouble.
