Mukul Roy asked to be cautious while bringing in AITC leaders into BJP

New Delhi, Jun 3 (UNI) West Bengal BJP's much ambitious plans to induct Trinamool leaders and sitting legislators have received initial hurdles with a section of state leaders expressing displeasure on accommodating tainted leaders from the rival camp.
The inclusion of Labhpur MLA Monirul Islam has sparked off discontent from BJP's district leaders in Birbhum on the ground that Mr Islam has been involved in violent politics in the past in the region.
Sources said senior BJP leader Mukul Roy, who has been involved in drawing leaders and workers from Trinamool camp, has been cautioned by party's national general secretary Ram Lal to be cautious and careful before bringing them to Delhi for joining the saffron party.
Mr Roy is himself a former Trinamool leader, who was credited for organisational skills in Mamata Banerjee's outfit.
Mr Roy said it is true there is some discontent at the district level on Mr Islam's entry into the party but the leadership is sensitive to the sentiments of the local leader and would not do anything which will go against the principles of the party.
On May 28, Mukul Roy's legislator son Subhrangshu Roy, two of his colleagues Tushar Kanti Bhattacharya and Debendra Nath Roy also joined the saffron party at party headquarters here.
The Hemtabad MLA from Uttar Dinajpur district Debendra Nath Roy is from CPI-M.
Among others, BJP's Birbhum district leader Kalosona Mondal has opposed the entry of Monirul Islam and said if the leadership sticks to its decision and continues to accommodate Mr Islam, he has the option of going back to RSS work.
Sources also said there is resentment to Mr Islam's entry as he is keen to get BJP ticket for his son from Labhpur Assembly elections in 2012.
