Mukul Roy joins TMC

New Delhi: BJP Vice-President Mukul Roy today made a switchover from the saffron party to Trinamool Congress, a move seen as strong jolt to BJP and a signal of TMC’s growing clout in Bengal after victory in assembly elections.

He joined the TMC in presence of TMC chief Mamata Banerjee and also shared a stage with her.

“I could not work in BJP, which is why I have returned to the TMC,” Mukul Roy said.

His son has also returned to the TMC.

Mamata Banerjee said Mukul Roy’s health was failing him in the BJP.

This comes a month after the TMC secured a landslide victory in the West Bengal assembly elections. There were reports floating around for some time that Mukul Roay would rejoin the TMC.

The event was preceded by a meeting between him and the top brass of TMC, including Mamata and TMC national secretary Abhishek Banerjee at the Trinamool Congress Bhavan in Kolkata.

TMC top brass including Abhishek Banerjee was present at the meeting.

Roy had contested the Assembly election from Krishnangar Uttar constituency and defeated TMC candidate actor Koushani Mukherjee.

Mukul Roy, a founding member of the TMC, had changed camps and joined BJP in November 2017.
