“I have visited Kolkata with TMC MP Derek O’ Brien and after meeting TMC national secretary Abhishek Banerjee met Mamata Banerjee at her office. We had a good discussion there and she has an excellent vision for her party. The rest of the question I will answer in a press conference on Tuesday at the national capital,” said Sushmita who earlier this day had resigned from the Congress.
Thanking Mamata Banerjee for including her in TMC, Sushmita took to Twitter and wrote, “Will give it all I have got…. @MamataOfficial thank you #KhelaHobe.”
