As a leader of opposition it is my duty to abide by law,” stated Suvendu adding that before he took primary membership of Bhartiya Janata Party he had left all the posts from the ruling Trinamool Congress.

Suvendu also claimed that anti defection law will be implemented in West Bengal in next two-three months.
