Tathagata Roy, who has apparently decided to bid "farewell” to the state unit of the BJP for the time being, has repeatedly poured scorn on its leaders since the party's defeat in the assembly elections, often using the "money and women" swipe.
By-elections on the Bhabanipur assembly seat in West Bengal was challenged in the Calcutta High Court but it was dismissed on Tuesday. TMC's Mamata Banerjee is set to go against BJP's Priyanka Tibrewal in the elections there.

‘We expect the judiciary to take action after taking into consideration the NHRC report, which has just exposed the tip of the iceberg,’ Suvendu Adhikari said
The recent Pegasus report identified West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek, his personal secretary Sumit Roy and her political advisor Prashant Kishor as snooping targets.
Adhikari said that leaders claiming BJP would win 170 seats led to the downfall of the party in the polls as the smugness and overconfident attitude led to a lack of understanding of the emerging ground situation.
TMC State president Ashish Lal Singh said preparations were underway and party workers were enthusiastic about the “big day.”
On Thursday, the Trinamool Congress chief accused NHRC of "disrespecting the court" and pursuing BJP's "political vendetta" by leaking its report to the media.
“Thousands… subjected to murder, rape, displacement and intimidation,” NHRC wrote in its report to Calcutta high court on post-poll violence in West Bengal.
The application of Mamata Banerjee was rejected by Justice Kaushik Chanda himself.
On June 18, the Calcutta HC had directed NHRC to constitute a committee to look into complaints of alleged human rights violation during the post-poll violence that occurred in Bengal in May
