Amid the exodus of party bigwigs ahead of the West Bengal Assembly Election 2021, a post apparently written by Trinamool's Birbhum MP Satabdi Roy has triggered speculation whether the actor-turned-politician who has been with the party since her political debut is all set to bid adieu to Mamata Banerjee's party. The message has been posted on the page of Satabdi Roy's fan club and claims to be a statement of the MP.
Addressed to her constituency people, the message in Bengali reads: "Good wishes for 2021. Be safe and healthy. I have a close and continuous connection with this constituency. But recently many people have been asking me why I am missing from several party programmes. I want to tell them that I want to attend all programmes. I like to be among you people. But I don't get to know about many programmes and if I am not even informed about events in my constituency, then how can I go. This saddens me as well. For the last 10 years, I have spent more time with you than with my families. Even my enemies won't be able to discredit me. So this year I am trying to make some decisions so that I can spend the entire time with you. I am grateful to you. You have been supporting me since 2009. Hope you will support me in the coming days too. Not only after I became an MP, but I have also always received immense love from the people of Bengal just as Satabdi Roy. I will try to stick to my commitment. If I take any decision, will let you know on January 16m Saturday at 2pm."
