It seems that rapid shifting from party-to-party and then again back to pavallion - Trinamool Congress - Mukul Roy is still confused.
In a press conference held at Krishnanagar Municipality office in West Bengal's Nadia district on Friday, the party-flipper said that Trinamool Congress will be defeated badly in the upcoming by-elections and the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party will reinstate its position here. No wonder, his statement made other TMC members present at the event on dais bit embarrassed.
Mukul said, "Let the by-elections happen. I am saying on behalf of BJP that Trinamool Congress will be defeated badly. BJP will reinstate its position". The party leaders however, keeping shame aside, tried to correct him. But he continued initially and later on corrected himself and raised his voice in favour of TMC. Though, he was not done yet.
His comments on the recent attack on the convoy of Trinamool Congress National General Secretary, Abhishek Banerjee at Tripura allegedly by the BJP supporters, was even more hilarious.
"Nothing of this sort happened. Whatever has happened is nothing new in politics," he said. However, soon after that, he said that he will participate in the Trinamool Congress Mission Tripura programme. Later, he was all praises for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Officially, Mukul Roy is the BJP legislator from Krishnanagar (North) constituency. However, he joined Trinamool Congress soon after the election results were announced.
