TMC's Mukul Roy says BJP, Cong will become irrelevant soon

Mukul Roy disagrees with Modi wave
Kolkata, Jan 29: Stating that his party doesn't agree with the so called wave in favour of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy on Tuesday didn't dismiss the possibility an alliance with the Congress, and said "you can't rule out anything in politics".

"I don't agree with this Modi wave, where will you find this wave in South India or in North-eastern India or in our Bengal. In the present political situation both the Congress and BJP will become irrelevant," said Roy in an interview to a Bengali news channel.

"We are against both corruption, communalism and regional bias. The Trinamool will play a pivotal role in national politics after Lok Sabha and will make its presence felt," said Roy. 

Roy, however, didn't clear the air from where all the anti-Congress and anti-BJP, regional parties would garner the magic figure of 272 for forming the government without the support of big parties like Congress and BJP.

Roy: Trinamool will play a pivotal role in national politics

"Presently there is an imbalance as regional parties are ruling most of the states. And on the issue getting the magic figure, it can only be discussed after watching the post-poll scenario," said Roy.

Roy said Trinamool would perform very well in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, even if it fight the polls alone, evading a direct answer whether Trinamool would enter into any alliance with Congress before polls. "In the last few elections it has been proved that the people of this state are firmly with us. Even if we fight alone in Bengal we will come out with very good results," said Roy.

When inquired about his usage of the word "if we fight alone", Roy said," Right now we are alone in Bengal. But in politics you can't rule out anything in future." Roy also said till now there have been no discussions with any party on the issue of alliance.
