Kolkata: Suspended Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy on Wednesday resigned his Rajya Sabha seat citing “lack of principle” as his compulsion to leave the party of which he was a founding member while the Trinamool accused him of insulting its supremo Mamata Banerjee.
“A party should have certain principles. Sometimes Trinamool Congress is with the BJP, sometimes they are with the Congress. They sometimes term the BJP as communal, sometimes say they are not communal,” Roy told the media at his residence in the capital.
Roy also said the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool was “very much a part of the NDA government once” and joined hands with the BJP and now the party thinks that the country cannot go ahead without the Congress.
