Any party would benefit from leaders like Mukul Roy: Bengal BJP chief

IANS | Kolkata |

Hailing the expelled Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy as a “good organiser”, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday claimed any political party would be benefited by the inclusion of a leader like him.

“He is a good organiser. He is largely responsible for the expansion of Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and in the country. 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.

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

Supporting Roy’s allegation of lack of principle in the Trinamool Congress, Ghosh said regional parties like Trinamool lacks political ideology and always act to be in power.

“Such regional parties have no ideology and principle. Their only aim is to rise to helm and stay in power. Their political decisions are driven by this motif and they try to look for explanation to suit their actions. Trinamool is no exception in this regard,” the BJP leader said.

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.

The state BJP president also claimed that during his prime days in Trinamool Congress, Roy was used by party supremo Mamata Banerjee to keep in touch with the BJP and RSS.
