The TMC’s deputy chief whip in the West Bengal assembly and a legislator from the Baranagar constituency of north Kolkata had submitted his resignation to Speaker Biman Banerjee in the Monday afternoon.

Roy said that he took the step after expressing his "deep disappointment and hurt" with his party and its supremo Mamata Banerjee for “deserting him during trying circumstances".

He said to the media at his Bowbazar residence in central Kolkata that the party leadership did not stand by him when his residence was raided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on January 12 this year.

“Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stood in the assembly and said that the ED was targeting Shajahan Sheikh. I was expecting her to speak a word or two about the raids at my place which devastated my family. But not a word was spoken," Roy said.

Claiming he has remained 'spotless and free of corruption' during his entire political career, he alleged, “I have reasons to believe that a section of my own party leaders were responsible for orchestrating the ED operation at my residence. I was devastated to know that some of them were rejoicing when my house was being raided and my family members were suffering deep trauma."

He also added, “I am really disappointed with the way the party is functioning. I am fed up with so many allegations of corruption levelled against the party and the government. I also do not support the way the issue of Sandeshkhali was handled," he said while maintaining that the dual issues of corruption and Sandeshkhali were the primary triggers for his decision to quit.
