Mukul Roy once again makes hordes of Trinamool, CPM leaders join BJP

Other than mass resentment against Mamata Banerjee, Mukul Roy’s management of elections and engineering dissent in Trinamool helped BJP make deep inroads into West Bengal


New Delhi: Three MLAs, including Subhranshu Roy, son of Mukul Roy, have joined the since the party’s impressive performance in the Lok Sabha election in West Bengal. They include two legislators from the Trinamool and one from the CPI(M).

Apart from Roy Jr, the other MLAs are Shilbhadra Dutta and Sunil Singh. Some 50 odd councillors from different regions of the State came to Delhi to join the BJP.

These councillors that have joined the belong to the municipalities of Kanchrapara, Halishahar and Naihati of the district of 24 Parganas. With this, BJP has seized control of the Bhatpara municipality will be seized. ’s newly-elected MP from Barrackpore Arjun Singh is the party president of the Bhatpara municipal area.

Singh said that now his party would have to capture the Bhatpara municipality. This time in the Lok Sabha elections, has won 18 seats in Bengal whereas, in 2014, it had got only two seats.

Mukul Roy played an instrumental role in this win. He had been a leader of Trinamool and a trusted lieutenant of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee before they fell apart and Mukul Roy joined the BJP. His strategies, including election management, have made a big contribution to the ’s Lok Sabha poll success.

Monitoring the goings-on by State in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya and constant instructions from the party’s national president Amit Shah are other factors for the saffron party’s success in West Bengal besides a groundswell of Hindu support for the national party due to the Trinamool’s alleged Muslim-appeasement policy. Organisational indiscipline in the Trinamool is another factor that contributed to this election result.

In West Bengal, the ruling Trinamool salvaged some of its pride by winning 22 seats. Congress has got two seats. The CPI(M)-led Left Front has been wiped out in the State.

For the last two phases of the election, the Trinamool had campaigned in the name of Bengali pride, accusing activists of desecrating Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar’s statue. This could have, it is believed, secured a few seats for Banerjee’s party.

Recently, Trinamool had suspended MLA Subhranshu Roy from the party for six years on the charge of spoiling the party’s image.

Party hoppers like Singh, who joined the and have now become MPs, could have been Trinamool MPs, but their former party did not consider their names during the ticket distribution.

There are other activists who are feeling trapped in the Trinamool and leaving the party.

After joining the BJP, Mukul Roy showed his skills in taking advantage of the resentment in the ranks of Trinamool and has, on quite a few occasions before today, led thousands of former activists of the ruling party of the State to join the national party.

Mukul Roy made some prominent local politicians join the BJP, too. He made, for example, Trinamool MPs Anupam Hazra and Soumitra Khan join the BJP. He broke away some leaders of the Left parties for the as well.
