Former Union minister Babul Supriyo, who joined the Trinamool Congress recently, said he had a "musical talk" with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday.
According to news agency ANI, Supriyo who switched over to the TMC from the BJP, said whatever the chief minister told him was "music to his ears." "We had a very musical talk, at the same time whatever she said was really music to my ears. I want to thank Didi and Abhishek (Banerjee) for welcoming me so affectionately and warmly to the TMC family," he said after his meeting with the TMC chief in Kolkata.
The singer-turned-politician said he was happy to meet the chief minister and added that she "asked me to work with all my heart and sing with all my heart which I think is icing on the cake."
Asked about his role in the TMC, Supriyo said it was for the party to decide. "I have nothing to say about it. It is for the party and our supremo Mamata Banerjee to decide. It is her prerogative," he said.
This was Supriyo's first meeting with Banerjee after he joined the TMC on Saturday.
