“Mamata Di’s work in Bengal is inspiring”: Sushmita Dev on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee

News Desk: At a press conference in Delhi on Tuesday, former Congress MP Sushmita Dev, who joined the TMC yesterday, said that West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s contribution towards the state is inspiring. She also said that it is wrong to compare TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee with Congress President Rahul Gandhi and magic will unfold if both of them come together.

She said “I have a long relationship with Congress and I have written everything about that in my resignation letter. I got many opportunities in Congress and I tried to do justice to all the responsibilities. Many people tried to call me, I but was not available. On August 15, I gave the Congress president my resignation”

“I am coming to the TMC office for the first time. Mamata Di is my idol, and thanks to her for accepting me to the party. Under Mamata Banerjee’s leadership, I will make her vision more powerful. Mamata Di’s work in Bengal is inspiring. Several schemes of the Bengal government are praiseworthy and the fighting spirit of Mamata Banerjee is known to everyone. My relationship with Mamata Banerjee is not just political, we have family ties. I joined TMC without any condition” she added.

On comparison between Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, she said “It is wrong to compare. You will see what magic unfolds when both come together”
