Hours after Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy’s son Subhranshu Roy claimed on Monday that he was untraceable, the MLA reportedly arrived in Delhi. Reacting to the development, Subhranshu said Tuesday that some people were indulging in “petty politics” and trying to take advantage of his father’s ill health.
A video which has emerged on social media, purportedly shot by a journalist, showed Roy wearing a white kurta-pyjama and talking to a man who came to receive him at the airport. The Indian Express could not independently verify the authenticity of the video.
Speaking at Delhi airport, Roy said he was in the National Capital for some work. “I come to Delhi very often and this time too I have come. I have some work in Delhi. I have not come for any medical check-up,” said the 69-year-old.
Prodded further, the senior politician who had defected to the BJP in 2017 and returned to the TMC fold after the 2021 West Bengal Assembly polls, said, “I have not come here for any special political reason. I have come for special work. Can’t I come to Delhi? I am the MLA… (was) MP here.”Most Read 1 Gadar 2 box office collection day 4: Sunny Deol film records biggest Monday collections of all time, nets a total of Rs 173 cr 2 Bigg Boss OTT 2 Finale Live Updates: Elvish Yadav wins Salman Khan’s show, Abhishek Malhan shares message from hospital 3 Happy Independence Day 2023: Wishes Images, Whatsapp Messages, Status, Quotes, and Photos 4 OMG 2 box office collection day 4: Pankaj Tripathi-Akshay Kumar film delivers better Monday than opening Friday, earns Rs 55.1 cr 5 Jailer box office collection Day 5: Rajinikanth film set to cross Rs 350-crore mark worldwide on Independence Day
