Mukul Roy to quit as Rajya Sabha MP today reveal reasons to quit Trinamool Congress

Everyone in a party is like a comrade and not a servant.

Talking to reporters later, Mukul Roy had said TMC would not have tasted success without the backing of the BJP at the national level in its initial years. And this kind of behaviour is common in every one-man political outfit.

"With deep pain in my heart, I do hereby submit my resignation from Membership of Parliament, Rajya Sabha with effect from afternoon of 11th October, 2017", Roy said in the resignation letter.

"Back then, no one called it (BJP) a communal party".

Roy was known for his organisational capability, loyalty to Banerjee and backroom manoeuvring skills.

As per the reports, Mukul Roy is officially set to join BJP.

Roy's decision has soured his relationship with the TMC as clear from party secretary-general Partha Chatterjee's recent attack.

His supporters say like Himanta Biswa Sarma, who left the ruling Congress in Assam to join the BJP that came to power in the 2016 state polls, Roy will defeat the TMC in Bengal in the coming days. He was among those who left the Congress for the TMC when Banerjee chose to form her own party.

State BJP president Dilip Ghosh lauded Roy as a "good organiser" and said he had made a "big contribution" to the growth of the TMC in Bengal.

The former Union Minister said he will not be able to work in the TMC "silently like other leaders". "But if he (Roy) is found guilty in the Narada and Saradha cases, we will not induct him into the party", the BJP leader said.
