Ever since the BJP's sweeping victory in the Lok Sabha polls, in which the party also made deep inroads into West Bengal, a number of Trinamool Congress MLAs and councillors had defected to the saffron party.
“The violence-hit village in Sandeshkhali is 20 km from India-Bangladesh international border. The area is known for witnessing illegal supply of arms. In view of this, we want an NIA probe into the incident,” Mukul 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.
