Both Dilip Ghosh and Mukul Roy are confident that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will induct more ministers from Bengal in due course

While Babul Supriyo was given the ministry of environment, and climate change, first-time MP Debasree Chaudhuri got the ministry of women and child development.

“I will request you (party workers) to wait for some time. More MPs will be inducted in the ministry,” Roy said.
