Kolkata: BJP North Bengal MLA Manoj Tigga on behalf of Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari on Friday submitted the letter demanding disqualification of Mukul Roy from MLA post to the chief secretary of West Bengal Assembly speaker Biman Bandhopadhyay.

According to Tigga, a 64-page letter was submitted to substantiate the claims that Mukul Roy should be disqualified from the post.

Notably, soon after Mukul’s rejoining the ruling Trinamool Congress, BJP MLA Suvendu Adhikari stated that he will ask the assembly speaker to disqualify Mukul from MLA post as he had won Krishnanagar (north) seat on BJP ticket. Suvendu also claimed that soon he will implement an anti-defection law in West Bengal.

Meanwhile, following the request of TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay, Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla on Friday said that soon he will call TMC MPs Sisir Adhikari and Sunil Mandal at the national capital to hear their part before starting the proceedings of disqualifying them from MP posts.

Sudip had several times written letters and even placed calls to Lok Sabha speaker over disqualification from MP post of Sisir and Sunil as despite contesting from TMC ticket both of them have defected to the BJP.
