TMC MLA says he has ‘lost faith’ in Abhishek
Kolkata: Subhranshu Roy, TMC MLA from Bijpur in North 24 Pargana, who is also the son of former TMC honcho and now BJP leader Mukul Roy, had written a letter to Abhishek Banerjee who is TMC MP and nephew of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying he had “lost trust, faith and respect” for him.
The letter was written on August 14, three days after Amit Shah’s visit to Bengal. While addressing a rally on August 11, Shah had alleged that Bengal was run by syndicates and that “Mamata and her nephew had siphoned off all the money that the Centre had granted for the welfare of the people of Bengal”.
Subhranshu wrote in the letter that he was shocked to hear Amit Shah levelling such allegations at Mayo Road and reading newspaper reports later that Abhishek indulged in corrupt practices. The letter said, “Amit Shah had disclosed that you were engaged in an illegal and corrupt practices and have misutilised the sum of Rs 3.59 thousand crore allotted by the central government to the government of West Bengal.”
Expressing his dissatisfaction, he wrote, “After going through such reports I have doubts about your conduct and suspect that you may be involved in illegal and wrongdoings. I have lost my trust, faith and respect for you.”
A senior leader of the party said that Subhranshu had done it to pave his way for defecting to BJP. “He is likely to follow the footsteps of his father Mukul Roy by trying to malign party leaders,” he said.
