Senior TMC leader and MP Sougata Roy, who acted as an interlocutor for the party and Adhikari, without naming anyone, said TMC is a very big political party with a mass leader like Mamata Banerjee. "It will not impact if one or two are leaving the party.

Roy said, “If Adhikari has already made up his mind for some future efforts then he should speak out instead of beating around the bush. No one is bigger than the party. Whatever he is today is because of the party, he should not forget it.”
