Chit-Less In Trust Fund

CM Mamata Banerjee and former aide Mukul Roy may have patched up, but sources say it’s not like their old bonhomie is back. The two had fallen out when, a year ago, Mukul publicly distanced himself from the chit fund controversy by claiming he was not the railways minister when ‘kingpin’ Sudipto Roy was put in charge of catering, indirectly pointing fingers at Didi. An enraged Mamata had cut off all ties with Mukul. It was only when it was time for state elections that the two decided to work together again. But Mamata, say insiders, trusts him much less now.
