Kolkata, Sept 18: Former Union Minister and sitting Asansol MP Babul Supriyo after joining Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday said he is proud of changing his decision of leaving politics as he got a great opportunity to serve Bengal.

Supriyo said, “I meant it from my heart when I said I will leave politics. However, I felt there was a huge opportunity that was entrusted upon me (on joining TMC). All my friends said my decision to leave politics was wrong and emotional. I am very proud that I am changing my decision. I am coming back for a great opportunity to serve Bengal. I am very excited. I will meet Didi (Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee) on Monday. I am overwhelmed by the warm welcome,” news agency ANI quoted the politician.

Supriyo said he will quit his MP post from the Asansol constituency. “Didi and Abhishek have given me a great opportunity. As I have joined TMC, there is no point in holding on to my seat in Asansol. I have come into politics because of Asansol. I will do for that constituency as much as possible,” he added.

Supriyo had quit the BJP following recent Union Cabinet reshuffle. Babul Supriyo had resigned in August as minister of state for Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
