Kolkata: Controversy seems not to be leaving Trinamool Congress grounds. Three TMC MPs have been accused of forcefully occupying rooms in the Nizam Palace for the past few years. It has been alleged that TMC MPs Mukul Roy, Saugata Roy and Tapas Paul have been forcefully occupying some rooms in Government Guest House Nizam Palace.
Union Minister of State for Urban Development, Babul Supriyo has said that an official of the Nizam Palace have been transferred for not abiding the law properly.
According to rules, a room in the Nizam Palace can be booked for official purposes for five days. The rules are same for MPs, Ministers and Government officials. There have been allegations that the three TMC MPs have been forcefully occupying the rooms. They have been issued several notices to vacate the rooms but to no avail.
In this respect, Mukul Roy said that room no. 3A is in his possession. He said, “I will vacate the room soon. I have given Union Minster Venkaiah Naidu a letter in this regard.”
On the other, Saugata Roy has alleged that BJP is playing politics over the room issue though Tapas Paul has said that he will not comment on anything.
Babul Supriya has said that unless the MPs vacate the rooms maintenance work is stuck in the first floor.
