Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has declared that TMC will support Mukul Roy’s name for the PAC’s chairman post. On June 24 Bengal CM also stated that “An MLA is qualified to be the Public Accounts Committee’s chairman. Mukul Roy has sent his proposal to the assembly. He is a Bhartiya Janata Party leader. His proposal has been approved by different political parties, specifically Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s MLA Binay Tamang. We will uphold him.
The proposal of the Public Accounts Committee’s chairman is the entitlement of the Assembly Speaker. What’s more, If there is a challenge for the post, we will win”. Trinamool Congress legislator from Egra constituency Tarun Kumar Maity has likewise supported his proposal. The Bhartiya Janata Party and Trinamool Congress engaged in a scuffle on June 23 when Mukul Roy, who left the BJP Party and got back to the Trinamool Congress on the 11th of June, entered his proposal for acceptance into the Public Accounts Committee.
On the 18th of June, the Bhartiya Janata Party presented an appeal before the Speaker of the West Bengal Legislative Assembly Biman Banerjee, saying that Mukul Roy, ought to be eliminated under the 10th Schedule – Provisions under Anti-Defection Law as he didn’t leave the Bhartiya Janata Party prior to exchanging sides. The West Bengal Legislative Assembly has 41 panels and among them, the Public Accounts Committee, which functions as the review revenue and the expenditure of the Govt for the legislative assembly.
As per democratic rules, it is the diplomacy of the assembly speaker to choose the chairmen of the different councils in the legislative assembly. The Bhartiya Janata Party needs Ashok Lahiri, an Indian economist who won the Balurghat seat, to be the Public Accounts Committee chairman. The choice to choose Mukul Roy as the Public Accounts Committee chairman won’t just assistance oblige the political leader in a key post yet, in addition, keep a saffron party MLA from involving the chairman post.
With CM openly declaring her help for Mukul Roy, his arrangement as Public Accounts Committee chairman is practically sure. Typically, the PAC chairman position is booked for opposition parties leaders. The Bhartiya Janata Party spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya stated that the improvement demonstrated that TMC didn’t follow constitutional norms and electoral rules. Mr Roy has no good, diplomat or no right to be a legislative member. So how could he present his proposal for the PAC’s chairman”.
