Babul Supriyo: On Wednesday, Babul Supriyo took oath as the West Bengal cabinet minister in Trinamool Congress. After becoming cabinet minister, Supriyo targeted the BJP over not picking any Bengali as a cabinet minister since the party came into power.
Babul was earlier associated with the BJP as a minister, later in 2021 he joined Trinamool Congress and won the prestigious Ballygunge constituency in April from the TMC.
“My entire family was heartbroken. It was a ‘Biswasgath’ to the Bengali people. Why can a Bengali not be a cabinet minister in Delhi? I don’t need any acknowledgement. I have been elected from Asansol twice,” Supriyo said.
Supriyo further added, “You have a ministry which is running for eight years. You have 18 MPs elected from Bengal. Why do you think Bengalis are so incapable that you cannot have a full-time minister from Bengal?”
“Responsibly has been given to me by Didi. I touched her feet today. My second innings will be brighter than the first innings,” Supriyo said.
Amid a huge reshuffle in TMC, after Partha Chatterjee got removed from the party over an alleged teachers recruitment scam case, Supriyo took oath as the West Bengal cabinet minister with 8 others in Kolkata.
The west Bengal Cheif minister Mamata Banerjee did a huge reshuffle in the party after Partha Chaterjee got suspended from the party in a recruitment scam. Ever since the party came into power TMC sources said this is one of the immense reshuffles in the party.
