Kolkata: Former Trinamool Congress MLA Sonali Guha, who switched allegiance to the BJP ahead of the West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021, broke down in tears while wanting to return TMC fold.
Sonali wrote to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and apologised for leaving the party and pleading her to take her back.
The letter shared by Sonali Guha on social media said that she left the party after being emotional. “I am writing this with a broken heart that I took the wrong decision of joining another party after being emotional. I could not get accustomed there,” she said in her letter.
“The way a fish cannot stay out of the water, I will not be able to live without you, ‘Didi’. I seek your forgiveness and if you don’t forgive me, I won’t be able to live. Please allow me to come back, and spend the rest of my life in your affection,” Guha added.

Guha is a four-time MLA and once a close associate of the chief minister, was among the slew of TMC turncoats ahead of the assembly elections.
She left the party to join BJP after dropped from the TMC’s candidates’ list for the assembly elections.
However, Guha said that she felt “unwanted” in the BJP. “My decision to join the BJP was a wrong one and I can feel that today. I did not bother to tell the BJP about leaving that party. I always felt unwanted there. They tried to use me and asked me to badmouth Mamata-di. I could not do that,” she was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
