Mukul Roy resigned due to BJP pressure: TMC

Former Trinamool Congress MP Mukul Roy submitted on Wednesday his resignation from the Rajya Sabha to the vice president and house chairman, M Venkaiah Naidu.

On Mr. Roy's remarks on dynasty politics, he said that Mr. Roy's son, Subhranshu, is an MLA only because his father is a politician.

Once considered to be party chief Mamata Banerjee's Man Friday, he was sidelined in the party after becoming embroiled in the Saradha case. Roy has, however, said he is yet to decide on his future course of action.

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

"We were very much a part of the NDA government once and joined hands with the BJP".

"The day CBI went after him, he realized that other than BJP he has no respite", TMC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee told the media.

Coutinho knows he can not play for Barca in the Champions League this season but that has not put him off joining. Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar has reportedly told his club to sign Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho .

Once the second-in-command in the TMC after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Roy was suspended for six years for "anti-party activities" in September. "If the Trinamool leadership now feels that the country can not run without the Congress, I would suggest that they should merge with the Congress", he said. These things compelled me to leave the party with a heavy heart.

"We have formed a political party to fight against the Congress rule".

Speculation is rife in political circles on whether Roy, who resigned from the Rajya Sabha, will join the BJP or form a new political outfit.

Roy had said though the meeting with Vijayvargiya was not scheduled, the BJP leader had asked about his plans.

The TMC had accused him of hobnobbing with the BJP.
