Kolkata: Mar 20: (CMC)   Mukul Roy, Mamata Banerjee’s trusted lieutenant, has been with the Trinamool Congress since its founding, particularly during the party’s movements against land acquisition at Singur and Nandigram, but has always preferred keeping a low profile. 
57-year-old Roy, who was not into politics initially, was the non-executive director of the United Bank of India from 2002 to 2005. 

He became a member of the Rajya Sabha from West Bengal in April 2006 and in August the same year was appointed member of the Committee on Urban Development as well as a member of the Consultative Committee for the Ministry of Home Affairs. 
In April 2008, he was appointed his party’s all India general secretary and in May 2009 became Minister of State in the Shipping Ministry. 
When Mamata Banerjee resigned as the Railway Minister after becoming Chief Minister of West Bengal, Roy was handed additional charge of the Railway Ministry.
