Mukul Roy quits BJP, rejoins TMC after leaving the party four years ago

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Mukul Roy on Friday rejoined the Trinamool Congress after quitting the party in 2017. His son Subhrangshu Roy also joined the party. The two leaders were inducted into Trinamool Congress at a press conference, attended by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the party’s General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee and others.

“I congratulate Mukul Roy on coming back to the party fold,” Mamata Banerjee said. “He is one of our own and and has now come back to our party.”

Meanwhile, Mukul Roy said that he was happy to meet colleagues from his old party. “I feel proud to say that Bengal will regain its status under Mamata Banerjee’s leadership.”

Earlier in the day, Mukul Roy had told reporters he was going to the Trinamool headquarters, triggering speculations that he would join the party. Unidentified party officials had told NDTV said that Roy was feeling “suffocated” in the BJP.

On October 11, 2017, Roy had resigned from the Rajya Sabha and all posts in the Trinamool Congress. He was also made the national vice president of BJP.

Before that, Roy was suspended from the Trinamool Congress for six years on September 25, 2017, for allegedly indulging in anti-party activities. A former Union railway minister, he was removed as the party general secretary in 2015, after the Central Bureau of Investigation began to look into his involvement in the Saradha chit fund scam.
