Kolkata: The bitter fight between Mukul Roy and Trinamool Congress has escalated a step further with TMC excluding Mukul from its Parliamentary Affairs Committee formed on Tuesday to formulate TMC policy in Parliament.
On the other hand Mukul was excluded from the five member Trinamool committee of Parliamentary affairs. The members forming the committee are Derek O’Brien, Shukhendu Shekhar Roy, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Saugata Roy, Kalyan Bannerjee.
Mukul’s exclusion from such an important decision making body and removal of the TMC office from his house is deemed as steps towards curtailing Mukul’s prominence in the party.
On the other hand TMC’s Delhi office which has earlier been removed from Mukul Roy’s Delhi flat has been shifted to TMC leader and Rajya Sabah member Nadimool Haque’s Delhi residence.
In an interesting development Mukul was absent from the TMC protest against amendment in the Land Acquisition Act in the Parliament on Tuesday.
