No plan to float new party, says ex-TMC leader

Trinamool Congress founding member Mukul Roy gave strong indications that he would not form a new party

Trinamool Congress founding member Mukul Roy gave strong indications that he would not form a new party

Mr Ghosh, an accused in the Saradha scam, said he had submitted a petition to the CBI seeking joint interrogation with Roy.

"Any political party would be benefited to have a leader like him", Ghosh said here on the day of Mukul Roy's resignation from the Rajya Sabha seat.

Claiming Roy's allegations of dynasty politics in Trinamool Congress to be true, Ghosh said it is unjust that a leader like him who worked so hard for the party had to leave in this way. "Taking help of his relationship with the BJP leadership, there may be an attempt to hide the misdemeanour of some of their (Trinamool) leaders here", he alleged.

Yesterday, Roy did not make any commitment towards joining another party, but lent his weight behind the BJP-RSS parivar.

Roy, who has sought an appointment with senior officials of the Election Commission of India, said he did not plan to float a new political party.

However, the leader said there has been no formal proposal from Roy to join the BJP.

Asked to comment on Ghosh's remarks, Roy told PTI, "I want to reiterate that I will fully cooperate with the CBI and the ED".

"Bypolls 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. Whenever they call me for questioning I will appear before them".
