Have always supported one team #MohunBagan…Have backed only BJP in West Bengal…That's it…I am going…"

"If you want to do social work, you can do it without being in politics…let's organise myself a little first and then…," he further added.

He clarified that his move wasn't aimed at "bargaining".
