Shubhendu Adhikari had said that Mukul Roy, who was elected as an MLA on a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ticket, has ceased to be a member of the BJP after joining the ruling Trinamool Congress and his appointment as the PAC president was in violation of the laid down rules as he held the post. A leader of the opposition party is appointed.
BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari alleged that the ruling Trinamool Congress ensured that its member is elected as the president of the PAC, a body that monitors government expenditure. He had said that Roy’s name was not included in the list of six MLAs given by BJP for the post of PAC president. Earlier, eight BJP MLAs on Tuesday resigned as heads of various committees of the Assembly in protest against the appointment of Mukul Roy as the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
