BJP MP Soumitra Khan's wife Sujata Khan joins Trinamool Congress

BJP MP Soumitra Khan's wife Sujata Mondal Khan on Monday joined Trinamool Congress. TMC MP and senior leader Saugata Roy welcomed her with TMC's party flag.

After joining the TMC, Sujata said, "I belong to the SC community. Everyone knows the oppression that SC women face. However, I worked tirelessly for the people of Bishnupur and won the seat for my husband. Despite this, I did not get my due respect from BJP. However, I don’t have the mentality of deserting my people after winning their trust and love."

Slamming the BJP, Sujata Mondal Khan said, "The party has six chief ministerial candidates and 13 deputy CM faces. When I was at the party, I used to feel embarrassed when questions were raised about BJP's CM face."

Sujata's move to TMC comes just days after former TMC leader Suvendu Adhikari joined BJP in presence of Union home minister Amit Shah.

Sujata's husband, Saumitra Khan is a Member of Parliament from Bharatiya Janata Party from Bishnupur and president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha.
