Kolkata: Former Union minister Babul Supriyo on Monday called on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at her secretariat office Nabanna, exactly two days after the BJP MP joined state ruling Trinamool Congress in presence of Abhishek Banerjee (MP) on Saturday.
Babul Supriyo was seen entering the state secretariat at Howrah, along with TMC Rajya Sabha member Derek O Brien, who was also present when the playback singer turned politician joined the TMC.
” I am happy with the talks we had with the chief minister,” Babul Supriyo told the waiting reporters after emerging from the CM office. ‘ i will perform whatever task is thrust upon me. I am also grateful to Abhisekh Banerjee for giving me this opportunity” Babul Supriyo said.
Babul Supriyo on Sunday said he wish to have Mamata Banerjee as the prime minister of India in 2024 because the TMC supremo is the only face of the opposition parties to challenge Narendra Modi across the country.
A BJP MP from Asansol Babul Supriyo said, ” I want to see that India’s most popular leader Mamata Banerjee becomes the PM after the 2024 Parliament poll and undoubtedly and she is India’s most popular leader to replace incumbent PM, Narendra Modi. When Narendra Modi was the hope of 2014, why not Mamata Banerjee to be PM in 2024 ” Babul Supriyo, a former ministerial colleague of Modi, said.
