Kolkata: Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari visited West Bengal Assembly on Thursday to submit a letter to Assembly speaker Biman Bandhopadhyay on removal of TMC leader and MLA Mukul Roy.
Due to absence of Biman Bandhopadhyay in the West Bengal Assembly and closure of receive section of the House, Suvendu couldn’t handover the letter to the speaker.
“The receive section of the House was shut today and speaker was also not there. We have readied our paperwork and will do everything possible to remove Mukul from MLA post and even if the receive counter is closed tomorrow then we will mail the entire documents on Saturday,” stated Suvendu.
Countering the claim, TMC spokesperson and state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said that Suvendu should first ask his father Sisir Adhikari to vacate the MP post that he had won from TMC ticket.
“The law will take its own course. Suvendu Adhikari is fighting for disqualification of Mukul Roy’s MLA post but first he should ask his father to leave MP post,” said Kunal Ghosh.
Notably, after winning the Krishnanagar (North) assembly seat under BJP ticket, Mukul Roy joined back TMC on June 11.
Incidentally, TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay on the other hand is in constant touch with Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla for cancelling MP posts of turncoat leaders like Sisir Adhikari and Sunil Mandal.
