Kolkata : A frail and fumbling Trinamool Congress parliamentary party leader Sudip Bandopadhyay, who has been granted  bail after spending four and a half months in custody in connection with the Rose Valley scam, on Sunday claimed he was not corrupt and would return to politics as soon he was adjudged fit by doctors.

Urging people to have faith in him, Bandopadhyay said: “Time will prove that, whatever else I may be, I never intended to do my politics with the stamp of corruption. I am not corrupt.”

Bandopadhyay, a Lok Sabha member, also denied any possibility of leaving politics or joining any other party.

“No no, why should I leave politics? I am sick. I will take rest for a few days. Let me get cured first. I will be back in politics wholeheartedly,” Bandopadhyay told the news channel ABP Ananda from his hospital bed in Bhubaneswar in his first reaction after getting bail.

“Ma, Mati, Manush Zindabad, Trinamool Congress zindaad, Mamata Banerjee zindabad,” he said.–IANS
