Kolkata: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ambika Roy on Tuesday moved the Calcutta High Court over removing Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mukul Roy from the chairman post of PAC in West Bengal Legislative Assembly.

“The person who has been given the post of the chairman is himself a corrupt person and if anyone who is corrupt is given that post in public account committee then no one will ever get to the actual expenses incurred by the government,” said Ambika also adding that the court should probe how the Speaker Biman Bandhopadhyay said that Mukul was nominated by BJP which is a ‘blatant lie’.
