Mukul Roy set for TMC return

Kolkata: While mystery shrouded whether former Railways Minister Mukul Roy would float a party on his own, there were reports that Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee was planning to get back her trusted soldier.

The Saradha Ponzi had put Trinamool Congress in backfoot with some of its forefront leaders being under the CBI scanner. The 2016 assembly polls would not be a problem for Trinamool Congress but the party was aiming the 2019 parliamentary polls.

Political analyst, Ipsita Ghosh,  said, “In 2016 Assembly Elections, Trinamool Congress is expected to win with a huge majority, but Mamata Banerjee’s main focus is 2019 Lok sabha where she is planning to portray her as the leader of that front. Now to do that she needs to stop the inner rivalry and control her party leaders. So she chose Mukul Roy because during his tenure there was hardly any report of political rivalry”.

Top Trinamool politicians from Shanku Deb Panda to Sadhan Pandey tried to alienate themselves from the issue when questioned by NewsGram. They cited that the party high command had directed the partymen to refrain from talking to media on the issue.

However, a Trinamool leader from Barasat, Aloke Ganguly said, “We are happy to have Mukul Roy back in the party. Mukul Roy would restore the normalcy in the party.”

Bijpur Trinamool Party president Sayan Ganguly said, “the party felt his absence badly in the last one year.  His return would boost the morale of the cadres of the party.”

However, Rupa Ganguly, President of BJP women’s wing in West Bengal said, “The return of Mukul Roy would not affect the fortunes of TMC as people will not vote for corrupt people.”

Sujan Chakraborty of CPI (M) said, “Mamata understands that her party needs a stalwart like Mukul to steer the party from troubled waters.”

However Mukul Roy said, “I have already filed an application for forming a party.”
