Kolkata: BJP national vice-president Mukul Roy has quit the party and rejoined the Trinamool Congress. Mukul Roy met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
West Bengal recently held assembly elections. The Trinamool Congress won a landslide victory and retained power for the third time.
In the run-up to the elections, the BJP recruited several key leaders from the ruling Trinamool Congress party, including ministers, MPs, MLAs and executives.
However, the election results were in favor of the Trinamool Congress. BJP executives have been expressing anger against the party leadership over the election defeat. It has been leaked that many from the Trinamool Congress will rejoin the party.
In this context a consultative meeting was held recently in West Bengal to prevent anyone from leaving the BJP. However, Mukund Roy, an independent official who had defected from the Trinamool Congress and joined the BJP, did not attend the meeting. The Swati officer did not attend the meeting as he had gone to Delhi. The Independent, who met Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP leader JP Natta, also met Prime Minister Modi and briefed him on West Bengal politics.
Mukul Roy’s wife was admitted to the hospital due to ill health and was unable to attend the BJP meeting. It was reported that Ana Mukul Roy was leaving the BJP and joining the Trinamool Congress, which is why she did not attend the meeting. Mukul Roy did not deny or support the news.
As a culmination, news broke that Mukul Roy was determined to leave the BJP with his supporters and rejoin the Trinamool Congress. To confirm this, Mukul Roy met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and joined the Trinamool Congress. Mukul Roy said a lot of people still come today. In this context, many more BJP MLAs have contacted the Trinamool leadership, saying they are ready to return to the party. Thus the BJP has been trying to appease the party with shock.
