Kolkata, June 11: No sooner did Mukul Roy rejoined the Trinamool Congress, few other turncoat leaders in BJP called Roy ‘Garbage’.

Taking to Twitter a turncoat BJP leader Baishali Dalmiya urged Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari to clear alleged ‘garbage’ from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“I would request BJP leader of Bengal Hon. MLA Shri@SuvenduWB ji to expel all the garbage out of Our BJP Party As soon as possible,” stated the Tweet.

Notably, few central BJP leaders on anonymity claimed that Suvendu Adhikari is the ‘face of the Chief Minister from BJP for 2026 Assembly polls’.

BJP Bishnupur MP Saumitra Khan (against whom speculation is on that he might rejoin the TMC) claimed that Mukul Roy is the ‘Mirzaffar’ of the West Bengal politics and also that for him Mukul Roy is dead.

Refusing to comment Union Minister Babul Supriyo said that defection in politics is common and also that Mukul’s rejoining TMC is his personal choice.

Slamming West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s claim that Mukul was intimidated in Bharatiya Janata Party, BJP West Bengal vice-president said that everyone in BJP is given his due respect.

“Had Mukul Roy was intimidated in BJP then he wouldn’t have become the national vice-president of the BJP. Mukul Roy is no kid that he will be afraid of anything,” mentioned Jai Prakash Majumdar.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Anupam Hazra alleged that there are several ‘lobbies’ working in the BJP and if it is not stopped then there will be more defections.

Taking to social media, Anupam said that during the recently concluded Assembly polls several leaders were not put to use for which BJP faced such a debacle.

“Most of the leaders including me were sitting idle during the election as we were not even called for the meeting. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited Bengal to win 200 plus seats and not just but due to the several lobbies working in the Bengal BJP the saffron camp is facing such problems,” stated Anupam.

Urging to address the problems at the earliest, the BJP leader also mentioned that there was a discord with Mukul Roy as well for which he had defected to the Trinamool Congress.

Meanwhile, a disciplinary committee has been formed in West Bengal BJP three days ago and following a complaint actions might be taken against BJP leader Sabyasachi Dutta for speaking in public about the poll debacle of the BJP.
