Senior TMC leader Mukul Roy submitted his resignation as chairman of Public Accounts Committee in West Bengal Assembly to Speaker Biman Banerjee citing ill health. Roy, who won the Krishnanagar Uttar constituency in Nadia district on a BJP ticket in the state election last year, had defected to the ruling Trinamool Congress in the state just a month later in June 2021. He did not, however, resign as a legislator despite being asked to do so by the saffron party.
"I have sent my resignation as PAC chairman to Speaker. My tenure (as PAC chairman) was for a year. It is about to end soon. So I decided to resign," Roy said.
