Krishnanagar, June 18: Bengal BJP president and party MP Dilip Ghosh said that Mukul Roy should have resigned as MLA before joining Trinamul Congress on ethical grounds.
Ghosh told this to the media persons in Hansadanga of Krishnanagar on Friday after attending a meeting with the party activists organised by the Nadia North district organising committee.
“We are a little bothered by Mukul Roy’s exit from BJP. But ethically he should have submitted resignation being the MLA before joining Trinamul Congress. He joined BJP after leaving all responsibilities in Trinamul Congress. Similarly he should have resigned this time since he was elected to the legislative assembly on BJP’s symbol”, Ghosh said.
Commenting on a petition filed before the Kolkata High Court by chief minister Mamata Banerjee challenging Suvendu Adhikari’s election in Nandigram, Ghosh further said, “It has become tough for chief minister to digest the defeat. Trinamul’s poll slogan ‘Bengal wants its daughter’ faced a jolt in Nandigram as people in Midnapore rejected the daughter. So we are not at all afraid about the outcome of the legal battle in the court”.
Turncoat Trinamul leader Mukul Roy won the assembly poll as a BJP candidate from Krishnanagar North seat defeating actor Koushani Mukherjee. However, early this month he left BJP and returned to Trinamul Congress along with his son Subhranshu Roy.
