Mukul Roy will also visit the capital during the visit of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to Delhi. Mukul recently left the BJP and returned to the Trinamool Congress. This will be his first visit to Delhi after returning to his old party. He is still officially a BJP MLA. The BJP is agitating to cancel Mukul's assembly membership under the anti-defection law.
Mukul will go to Delhi with Mamta or separately, it is not clear yet, although Mamta-Mukul being in Delhi together is considered very important from a political point of view. According to information received from Trinamool sources, Mamta wants to take Mukul with her to Delhi, while some party leaders say that Mukul will reach there before Mamata leaves for Delhi.
Trinamool general secretary Abhishek Banerjee is going to Delhi on the night of July 21. The Chief Minister is going to Delhi next week, that is, the top Trinamool leadership will be present in the capital during the monsoon session. Sources said that the Trinamool is trying to unite all the anti-BJP parties. Mukul will also play an important role in this. He can hold talks with leaders of various anti-BJP political parties in Delhi. Party spokesperson Derek O'Brien had met Akali Dal's Rajya Sabha member Naresh Gujral in this regard recently.
One thing in favor of the Trinamool is that it does not have any rivalry with any other anti-BJP party except the Congress and the Left. On the other hand, the anti-BJP parties are also eyeing the Trinamool after defeating the BJP in the recently concluded Bengal Assembly elections. In such a situation, Trinamool can lead anti-BJP parties in Parliament. Trinamool is preparing to vigorously raise the demand for bringing women's reservation bill in the monsoon session of Parliament.
