The 'ailing' TMC leader Mukul Roy says the BJP will win the Bengal civic elections

Mukul Roy, a leader of the Trinamool Congress, made a blunder on Friday when he predicted that the BJP would win the upcoming local body elections in West Bengal by a huge margin. According to PTI, Mukul Roy remarked during a visit to Bolpur in Birbhum district, "The BJP will emerge triumphant everywhere in the next municipal polls."

"The TMC is BJP and vice versa," Roy told reporters, as others looked at him with surprise. Mukul Roy, 67, had defected from the TMC to the BJP in 2017, only to return to Mamata Banerjee's party when it won a landslide victory in the Bengal assembly elections in May this year. The TMC leadership was placed on notice by Roy's mistake, and they scrambled to come up with a credible explanation for his words.

"Mukul Roy's mental equilibrium has been disrupted. He isn't feeling good. Anubrata Mondal, TMC's Birbhum district president, told India Today, "He doesn't know what he's talking about." Mukul Roy's comments was also denied by TMC secretary general Partha Chatterjee as the ravings of an unwell man.

"Mukul Roy is ill, which is most likely the cause of his rambling utterances. He is not a member of our political party. "Let's not give what he says any weight," Partha Chatterjee told PTI.

Mukul Roy isn't the first person to make such a comment in public. During a news conference in September, he said the same thing. Roy is not in good condition and has been a little disoriented since his wife died of Covid-19 earlier this year, according to the party and close family members.Roy has been getting treatment at the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata and makes few public appearances these days. The nature of his ailment, however, is still unknown. Roy's sodium and potassium levels have been shifting, according to family sources, according to India Today.
