TMC's Mukul Roy says he is in New Delhi after family's untraceable claim

Senior TMC leader Mukul Roy has surfaced in New Delhi hours after his family claimed he was “untraceable” since late Monday (April 17) evening. Roy said that he was in the capital on some personal work and that he had no specific agenda.

“I have been an MP for several years. Can I not come to Delhi? Earlier, I used to come to Delhi regularly,” Roy told reporters.

Although Roy has remained tightlipped about the agenda of his visit, political circles in West Bengal were abuzz with speculations over his next political move. The former railway minister’s son Subhragshu Roy had lodged a police complaint in which he had said that his father was untraceable.

Subhragshu had told PTI that his father was “untraceable” and “missing” since late Monday evening. Roy joined the BJP in 2017 following differences with the TMC leadership. He was made BJP national vice-president in 2020. He won the 2021 assembly polls on a BJP ticket and later returned to the TMC just a month after the results were announced.

Since his return to the TMC, he has remained away from the public glare. Roy quit the post of PAC chairman in the West Bengal assembly last year, citing ill-health.
