Like a kindergarten student who was not given a ribbon, A+ grade and words of assurance on his little project, former BJP MP Babul Supriyo on Wednesday took to Twitter to field for sympathy in a similar manner. After a netizen took a swipe at Supriyo by lauding the central government for developing infrastructure in the region, the now-TMC leader went into a full meltdown mode.
Lamenting about his pain, Supriyo wrote, “I deserved promotion after diligently & successfully working as an MoS & spotlessly too for 7 years but If I do t get acknowledged for my hard work, I lose respect for my Bosses & if there no respect, there no point in handing on cuz I won’t be able to give my best when dejected,”

Supriyo was responding to a harmless statement made by a user who wrote, “So u wld still agree that BJP in centre is actually transforming the infrastructure and aiding people in facilitating their lives”

Like a true sepoy, Babul even mollycoddled his leader Mamata Banerjee to show that he was still subservient in front of her. Supriyo further bemoaned that although he was trolled left, right, and centre for having ‘Jhhalmoori’ with West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, he could not have gotten the encroachment problem solved without her intervention.
The former Asansol MP tweeted, “I got trolled & abused to hell by my own party for having ‘Jhhalmoori’ with Honble CM @MamataOfficial because without her help the encroachment problems couldn’t hv been solved•She instructed Hon’ble @FirhadHakim to solve the Dattabaad & other such problem areas & he helped me”
It is imperative to note that Firhad Hakim, who was lauded by Supriyo along with Mamata is a key accused in the Narda scam.
A conscientious politician, claims Babul Supriyo
Painting himself larger than life and a caring politician who had transcended the politics of the state to get the job done, Supriyo patted his own back by tweeting, “As MIN Heavy Industries, I discovered there wasn’t any Centre of Excellence in WB. I got it done with an 80% grant from my ministry with able help from the Director of @IITKgp Shri Partha Chakraborty. I am not talking abt Asansol cuz my work made me win by 3 times the margin in 2019,”
Calling himself the king of his own life, Supriyo’s rant continued as he tweeted, “I am the King of my own life & decisions Boss, I don’t do Ghulami & that’s why I cud resign as MP of Asansol but plz check my FB, I am still performing my duties & will continue to do so,”
Supriyo quit politics but later joined TMC
After being humbled in the assembly elections, Supriyo quickly quit politics but trudged back, right after he had a job offer from TMC.
Justifying his hypocrisy, Supriyo stated, “I meant it from my heart when I said I’ll leave politics. However, I felt there was a huge opportunity that was entrusted to me (on joining TMC). All my friends said my decision to leave politics was wrong and emotional. I’m very proud that I am changing my decision. I am coming back for a great opportunity to serve Bengal. I am very excited. I will meet Didi (CM Mamata Banerjee) on Monday. I am overwhelmed by the warm welcome.”
An opportunist disguised as a friend can be every bit as dangerous as an outright enemy. In Indian politics, no one can understand it better than the BJP. Babul Supriyo was a snake that utilized PM Modi’s name to gain political clout.
However, when things went a little rough, he promptly jumped the ship and landed in the lap of Mamata. For a leader that was more concerned with the state of his car than the Hindus who were massacred by the TMC goons in the aftermath of assembly elections — nothing else really needs to be added.
