Former Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chatterjee Not Leaving BJP as of Now, Says Mukul Roy
Former Kolkata mayor Sovan Chatterjee, who had expressed desire to quit the BJP just weeks after coming into its fold, is "not leaving as of now", senior party leader Mukul Roy said on Tuesday.
Chatterjee a four-time TMC MLA, who joined the BJP on August 14, wanted to part ways with the party for being "regularly humiliated", his close associate Baishakhi Banerjee claimed on Saturday.
The two had a marathon meeting with Roy at his residence in New Delhi on Monday night, BJP sources said.
"The party leadership had asked me to meet Sovan and Baisakhi, and we discussed a range of issues... There may have been some misunderstanding. "Everything is sorted out, and I have made it clear that they are very much with the party (Banerjee had also joined the BJP along with Chatterjee). They will remain in the party as of now," Roy told reporters on Tuesday.
