Mukul Roy meets Vijayvargiya in Delhi

On Wednesday Mukul Roy met Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu for his Resignation as TMC MP from Rajya Sabha. On Monday Rajya Sabha MP Roy said that finally, he going to hand over his resignation to the Vice President and then he will tell people of this country that why he made a decision to end his long political innings with Trinamool Congress, the party which was founded by him along with others.

On Mr. Roy's remarks on dynasty politics, he said that Mr. Roy's son, Subhranshu, is an MLA only because his father is a politician. Roy has, however, said he is yet to decide on his future course of action.

His supporters say like Himanta Biswa Sarma, who left the ruling Congress in Assam to join the BJP that came to power in the 2016 state polls, Roy will defeat the TMC in Bengal in the coming days.

"I am not saying I will join the BJP or I will not join (it)".

He addressed the media after his resignation.

"Today I am resigning from RS membership elected as a member of TMC, also from all posts of TMC as a primary member..."

At a press conference, Roy said he'd been "compelled" to resign with "a heavy heart". "The party [Trinamool] was formed to fight the Congress".

Earlier, speculations were rife that Mukul Roy will join the BJP or form a new political outfit.

The Trinamool Congress in September suspended former Railway Minister Mukul Roy for six years for "anti party activities".

Asked if Roy, a founding member of the Banerjee-led party, will join the BJP, Vijayvargiya had said that his party is not in a hurry over the matter.

The TMC had accused him of hobnobbing with the BJP.
