BJP MP Babul Supriyo quits politics, says not going anywhere else

NEW DELHI: Former Union minister & BJP MP Babul Supriyo has announced his decision to quits politics.
In a post on his official Facebook page, Supriyo wrote, “Goodbye. I’m not going to any political party. TMC, Congress, CPI(M) nobody has called me, I’m not going anywhere…One need not be in politics to do social work.”
The singer-turned politician also said he is resigning as member of Parliament and will vacate his government allotted residence within a month.
He was recently dropped as Union minister of state for environment as part of Modi government’s cabinet reshuffle.
Supriyo had confirmed his resignation through a post on social media, “I have been asked to resign and I have.”
However, soon as an afterthought, he edited his post and said “I have resigned from the council of ministers.” He then went on to add, what appeared a sarcastic comment: “As I had framed it earlier, “Asked to resign” may not be the right way to put it.”
