Babul Supriyo Quits BJP, Joins TMC

Kolkata: Singer and BJP MP from Asansol Babul Supriyo has jumped the ship again. This time he shifted loyalty to the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC).

Supriyo, a vociferous critic of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, joined TMC on Saturday in the presence of party general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien.

Now it remains to be seen if he quits his Lok Sabha seat and is given a Rajya Sabha nomination by TMC from the seat vacated by Arpita Ghosh.

“I meant it from my heart when I said I’ll leave politics. However, I felt there was a huge opportunity that was entrusted upon me (on joining TMC). All my friends said my decision to leave politics was wrong and emotional,” Supriyo was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“Didi and Abhishek have given me a great opportunity. As I have joined TMC, there is no point in holding on to my seat in Asansol. I’ve come into politics because of Asansol. I will do for that constituency as much as possible,” said.

According to Supriyo, he will meet TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday. “I’m very proud that I am changing my decision. I am coming back for a great opportunity to serve Bengal. I am very excited. I will meet Didi (CM Mamata Banerjee) on Monday. I am overwhelmed by the warm welcome,” the singer-turned-politician said.
