In a major jolt to the Centre, former BJP national vice-president and MP from Krishnanagar North, Mukul Roy, has again switched to the Trinamool Congress in presence of party supremo Mamata Banerjee.
This comes after a meeting between Roy and West Bengal Chief Minister. His son Subhrangshu Roy also returned to the Trinamool Congress.
Roy was one of the first frontline TMC leaders, who switched over to BJP nearly four years back and he was associated with Mamata Banerjee since the days of party forming.
Whatever might be the case but political observers are of the opinion that Roy’s equation with BJP is fast becoming strained allowing him to get closer to his earlier party and that was evident from several incidents in the last few days.
Reportedly, Roy played an active role in BJP’s campaign for the recently concluded Bengal assembly polls.
