'Police Is Not For Me'

On why she resigned as an MP, Chakraborty explained: "Politics is not for me. You have to promote someone here (in politics) if you are helping someone...Besides being a politician, I also work as an actor. I have equal responsibilities. If you join politics, you are criticised whether you work or not."

She further said: "I spoke with Mamata Banerjee regarding the issues I had. I wanted to tell her about my resignation from a party that gave me an opportunity to go ahead."

In the 2014 general elections, Sugata Bose of the TMC defeated former MP Sujan Chakraborty of the CPI-M from Jadavpur with a margin of 9.84 per cent or 1,25,203 votes.
