Former BJP leader Babul Supriyo will formally resign today as the Lok Sabha member of the Parliament, weeks after he quit the party to join Trinamool Congress.
The former union minister in a tweet thanked Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla for granting him an appointment to resign as Lok Sabha MP.
“Sincere Gratitude to Hon’ble Speaker Sir @ombirlakota for granting me his time tmrw at 11am to formally resign as a MP. I will not hold on to the Berth/Perks/Salary of a MP now that I am no longer a part of @BJP4India that I won the seat for. If I have it in me, will win it again,” Babul Supriyo wrote in the tweet.
This comes after the two-term MP from Asansol had on September 20– two days after joining West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress party – wrote to Birla, seeking a ‘brief’ appointment with him to formally resign as a member of the house.
Hitting out at his detractors, Babul Supriyo reminded them of his time with the saffron party.
“Just wish to ask one Ques (question) to the ‘Employed Trolls’ who am sure are attacking me frm (from) their homes. So where were u (you) guys when I fought for BJP since 2014? Ask your conscience as to who back-stabbed whom.. Unless needed I don’t post anything on SM (social media). Just read the first two comments,” he said.
