While Mukul Roy has rejoined to the Trinamool Congress, there is no clarity yet how and in what capacity he would be accommodated in the ruling party. Will he be given a similarly important role as he was when he joined the BJP in 2017? Will he remain an MLA or is there a bigger responsibility awaiting him in the Parliament?
A source in the Trinamool said, “As reward for returning to the Trinamool, Mukul Roy may be made the national vice-president of the party. What’s more, he may be provided with Z+ security by the Bengal government while his son Subhranshu might get Y+ security. However, he wrote to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Saturday asking for his ‘Z category’ security to be withdrawn. From this morning, state police has stepped up security outside his residence.”
