Mukul Roy Tears Into Mamata for Abetting Nepotism, Congress
Former Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy resigned from the Rajya Sabha last fortnight and gave up the primary membership of the party saying that “we are comrades in party and not servants. One-person party is not good for the country. At this moment a national party is required for country’s betterment.” Roy, who was unhappy with West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee’s elevation in the party, said that “dynasty politics is hurting all political parties” in the country.
He said that since its inception, Trinmool supported the BJP till 2007 and then became part of the UPA from 2009 to 2012. “The party (Trinamool) was formed to fight the Congress. If the Trinamool leadership now feels that the country cannot run without the Congress, I would suggest that they should merge with the Congress,” he said.
