Saugata, Mukul not on same page on ‘late entrants’

The rift in the Trinamool Congress top brass came to light once again on the party's foundation day when two senior leaders — Saugata Roy and Mukul Roy — contradicted each other on the role of those who joined the party after the Singur movement.

At rally at North 24 Parganas, Saugata said those who joined the party after Singur and Nandigram movements should be placed "at the second row of leadership" and those associated with the party since its inception must occupy the first row. In his speech, Mukul said there's nothing wrong in giving importance to the 'late entrants'. He said many "intellectuals" joined the party long after its inception, and the party is like a family where everyone stays together.
