Mamata sends stern warning to Mukul, says mend ways
Parliamentarian Derek O’Brien, who is also one of the members of the DC, said, “We were asked to go through the statement made by him and soon we will submit our report.”

For the last few days, Banerjee is annoyed with Roy for opening up to the media. Her observation came after Roy took a dig at the industrialization claims made by the state government and his meeting with the Pirzaada of Furfura Sharif Toha Siddique in Bengal. Siddique is known to be a staunch critic of the Banerjee on her “failure” to fulfill the promises made to the minorities.

Meanwhile, Roy’s seat in the Rajya Sabha is pushed to the last row meant for suspended MPs. Earlier, he used to sit on a front row and then it was changed to third row and on Tuesday he sat on the last bench.

When asked whether the seat positioning shows that he is almost out from the party, Roy said, “I don’t know about tomorrow, but presently I am in the Parliament and continue to serve the people.” He also expressed “displeasure” after a section of media asked him “uncomfortable questions” over Banerjee and said, “Please don’t make such comments. Didi’s stature is much bigger and she is a very nice human being.”

Referring to renowned West Indies cricketer Gary Sobers, Roy said, “Initially, Gary used to bat after one down. Later he became an all rounder and used to bowl chinaman (unorthodox spin) . All, I wanted to say that his name will always there till the existence of Cricket in the world.”

On March 14, Roy will be going to Nandigram in West Bengal to attend a public meeting to pay homage for those killed in the police firing in 2007. “I am not going to attend any party programme in Nandigram. I am going as an individual person to stand beside the people who lost their family members in the firing,” he said, while claiming that CBI probe in Nandigram firing could have been done in a better way.

On the context of having talk with expelled CPI (M) leader and former minister for land and land revenue in the Left Front government Rezzak Mollah, he said, “I met him as a political leader. Earlier, also I was officially asked by the party to “neutralize” Mollah. Later in the evening Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal met West Bengal Chief Minister reportedly to discuss pending bills on “Coal Mines”. Around 7 pm Banerjee went to Rashtrapati Bhavan to meet President Pranab Mukherjee.
