Rebel Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mukul Roy today quit the party as well as his Rajya Sabha seat, saying all members in a party "should be comrades and not servants".

Mr Ghosh, an accused in the Saradha scam, said he had submitted a petition to the CBI seeking joint interrogation with Roy. Mr. Roy did not make any personal attacks on Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and said: "I have always practised ethical politics and will continue to do so". On October 11, he held a news conference asserting that it is not communal. "Taking help of his relationship with the BJP leadership, there may be an attempt to hide the misdemeanour of some of their (Trinamool) leaders here", he alleged.

"This happened after (Congress vice-president) Rahul Gandhi refused to accept him into his party".

However, the leader said there has been no formal proposal from Roy to join the BJP.

Later, when Roy was asked in Delhi to comment on Ghosh's remarks, he said he would not react to the "ramblings" of a "frustrated mind". Instead, he said, he would like to offer information to the poll panel on ways to conduct free, fair and peaceful elections in Bengal.

"Bypolls to a couple of Assembly seats in Bengal will be held in November. Whenever they call me for questioning I will appear before them".
