Subhranshu Roy, suspended Trinamool MLA, to join BJP

He hailed his father Mukul Roy, saying the Trinamool lost to his father's superior organisational skills during the Lok Sabha poll

Kolkata: Suspended Trinamool MLA Subhranshu Roy on Friday said he would join the BJP within a few days, a “new innings” in which he will be able to “breathe freely”.

The Trinamool suspended Roy for six years for anti-party comments. Secretary- of Trinamool  announced by the decision at a press conference a day after the election were out.

Subhranshu Roy is a two-term MLA from the Assembly constituency of Bijpur and the of BJP leader Mukul Roy.

“Now, I will breathe freely. Many in the Trinamool feel suffocated,” he said, claiming that several others from the party will “follow his footsteps”.

“My father has advised me to be careful, as I may be implicated in a false criminal case, or maybe attacked… I will join the BJP within two to three days,” Subhranshu said. At a previous press conference, he had said he was keen to start a new innings.

Subhranshu also said he did not get due respect in the Trinamool.

“Now, I only want in Bengal,” the two-time MLA from Bijpur Assembly constituency, which is part of the Barrackpore Lok Sabha seat, said. He hailed his father’s organisational skills and said he had tried to give a lead to his party from his Assembly segment, but failed to do so as his father was a better organisational player than him.

“Today, I have no qualms in accepting that I have lost to my father. He is a real of Bengal politics. Our party has lost and people voted against us. We should accept it,” Subhranshu said.

Mukul Roy, once considered to be the second-in-command of the Trinamool, had joined the BJP in November 2017 after a fallout with party supremo Mamata Banerjee. He is being credited for the stellar show of the BJP in Bengal in the just-concluded election.
