After terming his former party as a "private limited company", Roy has now accused Trinamool Congress of tapping into his phone.  

The former Railway Minister, Mukul Roy, today approached Delhi HC with allegations that TMC is tapping into his private phone conversations.

The minister even reached the high court to attend the proceedings, however, the matter was adjourned till November 20 as the concerned judge wasn't available today.

Things took off after Mukul Roy, on his first public rally as a BJP leader in Bengal on November 10, targeted the chief minister and her nephew, by terming his former party as a "private limited company".

Roy also questioned the role of his erstwhile boss in helping her nephew benefit at the behest of the state administration.

ROY'S SCATHING ALLEGATIONS

"The football world cup just concluded here. What did we see? There were world cup hoardings everywhere with "Biswa Bangla" logo on them. Biswa Bangla brand is not a government property. I have documents which show it is a private company and its owner is Abhishek Banerjee," Roy had alleged.

Taking serious offense on Roy's allegations, Abhishek sent a legal notice to him on November 13, stating that the claims made by the BJP minister were false, and demanded an apology from him within 48 hours.

In his reply, Roy's counsel on Wednesday said that the allegations aimed against him were erroneous and his statement was misinterpreted to tarnish his reputation.
