Talking to media, expelled party leader Dipak Ghosh said, "The draft is ready and we will file the documents for floating the new party with the Election Commission after Eid. Once the formalities are completed, we will make the announcement".


However, former Union Minister Mukul Roy has declined to confirm the development and termed the comment made by Ghosh as his personal opinion.

"His comments are his own, I have nothing to say about that," Roy said in his reaction.

Once the second-in-command of Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool and credited as the architect of the party's electoral success, Roy was stripped of all party posts and his status worsened after he was quizzed by the CBI in the multi-crore-rupee Saradha scam.

Going against the party stand that the CBI was targeting Trinamool leaders, Roy insisted that he would cooperate with the probe agency even if it called him a hundred times.

Speculation has been rife that Roy, a former Union railway minister, has been endeavouring to float his own political outfit.
