No plan to float a new party: Roy
A DAY after quitting the Trinamool Congress and his Rajya Sabha seat, Mukul Roy on Thursday said he had no plans to float a new political party. Roy, who is slated to visit the Election Commission, said he was not going there to talk about a proposal for a new party but to discuss upcoming assembly bypolls.
“By-polls to two assembly seats in West Bengal will be held in November and I will request the EC to ensure that the elections are held in a free and fair manner. I will give my suggestions in this regard to the EC,” Roy, who was suspended by the Trinamool Congress last month, told the ‘ABP Ananda’ news channel.
Though Roy refused to comment when asked if he would join the BJP, a close aide of his told PTI he was likely to do so after Diwali.
