“A day after leaving the BJP and joining the TMC, former Union minister Babul Supriyo had a war of words with BJP leader Swapan Dasgupta on Twitter. In response to Swapan Dasgupta’s claim that Babul Supriyo’s “”defection may end up damaging his own image””, Supriyo retorted that the same must then be true of the ‘rivals’ who joined the BJP and were given top posts earlier this year. “”Did I create history by shifting sides? Well, all the ‘rivals’ who joined the BJP, were embraced and made to sit on top posts – while ignoring all those ‘real’ BJP grassroots fighters – should be dumped because they may have all spoiled their images (like you said I did) and tarnished BJP’s image. Right?”” Babul Supriyo wrote on Twitter. Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta, in his tweet, had also said that the anger of BJP supporters and ‘disgust’ of ordinary people after Babul Supriyo joined the TMC was ‘very real’. In response to this, Babul Supriyo said that he accepted this but his anger too has been ‘real’.
