Babul Supriyo invites all CMs for his marriage reception
Singer- turned- politician and Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Babul Supriyo, called all state Chief Ministers to invite them for his marriage reception on Tuesday.
Earlier, reportedly Supriyo personally invited West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to his wedding reception in the national capital. But Banerjee will not be able to attend Supriyo's marriage reception as her visit to the Left ruled northeastern state Tripura, has been already fixed on August, 9.
This will be her first visit to Tripura after taking charge as Chief Minister for the second time following a landmark victory in West Bengal fighting against the Congress and Left Front alliance.
TMC declared its movement with target to exile CPIM from power in the 2018 assembly election. Around a month back six rebel Congress MLAs in Tripura had joined the TMC over the Congress-Left Front alliance in West Bengal. The state TMC leadership also alleged the Manik Sarkar led Left government which is ruling Tripura for around two decades is “undemocratic” and “corrupt” besides depriving all section of people.
Banerjee and Supriyo seem to share a special bond despite Bengal's political divide. He had spiced up Bengal politics by sharing jhalmuri, phuchka and a car ride with Banerjee in May last year. He sprung a surprise on Trinamool on New Year's Day 2016 by going up on stage uninvited and wishing his arch rivals. He also attended Banerjee's second swearing-in on May 19.
The Asansol BJP MP is getting married to Rachna Sharma, an airhostess. Reportedly, the wedding in the capital will also be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 9.
