TMC MP Satabdi Roy Drops Defection Move To BJP
Kolkata: In less than 12 hours after giving a clear hint of defecting to BJP, actor-turned- politician Satabdi Roy on Friday said she will continue to remain with the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC).
On Thursday, Satabdi had taken to social media to state that she had been sidelined within the party. She followed it up with expressing her desire to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi on Saturday, giving a clear hint of switching over to the saffron camp.
But soon after, she held an hour-long meeting with Abhishek Banerjee, nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh.
Coming out of the meeting, she said, “I spoke about my problems to Abhishek who assured me of all help. So I am not going to Delhi tomorrow but will continue to support TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee.”
Talking to Odishabytes, Birbhum parliamentarian said there are some internal problems in the party. But everything will be cleared after polls. Now all TMC leaders and cadres should unite and remain like a big family and fight the polls, Satabdi added.
Kunal Ghosh, who visited the actor’s house earlier on the day, said he was ‘extremely happy’ with the decision of Satabdi.
