TMC MLA Debashree Roy who won twice from Raidighi constituency of South 24 Parganas quit the party on Monday (March 15). After quitting the party, she said, “The party used me. I was not given the due respect.”

Debashree Roy complained to Mamata Banerjee and told her that she does not want to have any more relationship with the Trinamool. On Monday, Debashree sent a letter to Trinamool state president Subrata Bakshi informing him of her decision.

Debashree said, "I have worked for the people for 10 years in a row. I want to continue that. However, I am thinking of returning to the acting industry again. That is my real world. I still get a call from the industry with respect.”

Debashree Roy has not been nominated as Trinamool’s candidate this time. The entire candidates’ list for the party has been released already but the name of the actress was missing.
