TMC leader Babul Supriyo has submitted his resignation as BJP’s Lok Sabha MP.
Babul Supriyo submitted his resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Tuesday.
“I will not hold on to the Berth/Perks/Salary of a MP now that I am no longer a part of BJP that I won the seat for,” Babul Supriyo has said on Monday.
Singer turned politician Babul Supriyo had joined the TMC on September 18.
TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and MP Derek O’Brien had welcomed him to the party on September 18.
“I have been given a great opportunity. However, as I have joined the TMC, there is no point in holding on to my seat in Asansol. I have come into politics because of Asansol. I will do for that constituency as much as possible,” Supriyo had said after joining the TMC.
Babul Supriyo had quit the BJP after being dropped from the union cabinet where he served as the Minister of state for environment, forest and climate change.
