A day after 25 political leaders from over 20 parties came together on Saturday, vowing at a mega rally here to put up a united fight against BJP in the Lok Sabha elections, BJP leader Mukul Roy Sunday called it a “flop show”.
A Delhi court on Wednesday rejected a criminal defamation complaint filed by BJP leader Mukul Roy against Abhishek Banerjee, the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying the statement referred to as defamatory were not made by the respondent.
“Mukul babu and Dilip babu (BJP state president Dilip Ghosh) will not win hearts in West Bengal by making such promises. They can win the hearts of the prime minister. The people are with the development ushered in by Mamata Banerjee," Subhrangshu Roy said.
Newly inducted BJP leader Mukul Roy Friday accused his former party Trinamool Congress of having turned itself into a "private limited company" under the stewardship of Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek.
