Mukul Roy to float new party after Eid, claims aide

Kolkata,  (IANS) Former Trinamool Congress general secretary Mukul Roy will float his own political party after Eid, his aide and expelled party leader Dipak Ghosh said on Sunday. The former union minister, however, declined to confirm the development.

“The draft is ready and we will file the documents for floating the new party with the Election Commission after Eid. Once the formalities are completed, we will make the announcement,” Ghosh told mediapersons here.

Roy, however, termed Ghosh’s comments as personal.

“His comments are his own, I have nothing to say about that,” he said in his reaction.

Once the second-in-command of Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool and credited as the architect of the party’s electoral success, Roy was stripped of all party posts and his status worsened afer he was quizzed by the CBI in the multi-crore-rupee Saradha scam.

Going against the party stand that the CBI was targeting Trinamool leaders, Roy insisted that he would cooperate with the probe agency even if it called him a hundred times.

Speculation has been rife that Roy, a former union railway minister, has been endeavouring to float his own political outfit.
