Babul Supriyo meets chief minister Mamata Banerjee at Nabanna
Former junior Union minister Babul Supriyo met chief minister Mamata Banerjee at Nabanna on Monday.
After a half-an-hour interaction, the former BJP leader who defected to Bengal’s ruling party on Saturday, said he and Mamata talked about everything from muri to music, but revealed nothing about Trinamul’s offer or his role in his new party.
He said Mamata gifted a book for his father, and him an uttoriyo, which he wore.
The Asansol MP said he was likely to go to Delhi on Wednesday to submit his resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
Mamata, who remained silent on the issue, went into a huddle with her nephew and party’s national general-secretary Abhishek Banerjee, instrumental in Supriyo’s induction, and poll strategist Prashant Kishor at Nabanna. Later, along with Abhishek, Trinamul state chief Subrata Bakshi and others, she went to a Sitala temple in Bhowanipore where she is a bypoll candidate.
