New Delhi: Former Union minister and BJP Lok Sabha MP Babul Supriyo on Saturday indicated that he is leaving the BJP and politics.
In a Facebook post, the Bollywood singer turned politician wrote, “Goodbye. I’m not going to any political party. TMC, Congress, CPM nobody has called me, I’m not going anywhere…One need not be in politics to do social work.”
