Babul Supriyo, Former Union Minister and ex-BJP MP, formally joins Trinamool Congress
Former Union Minister and ex-BJP MP Babul Supriyo on Saturday formally joined the TMC. Supriyo had quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) following the recent Union Cabinet reshuffle. In July this year, Supriyo had announced that he had decided to quit politics and would be resigning as an MP. He hinted the decision was partly due to losing the ministerial berth and also differences with the state BJP leadership.
