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.
