Mukul Roy Tears Into Mamata for Abet­ting Nepo­tism, Congress

The Day After - - DIARY | STATES -

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.
