Former Congress MP Sushmita Dev Quits Party, To Join Trinamool Congress

Former Congress MP Sushmita Dev has quit the party and is set to  join the Trinamool Congress of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today.

The change in her Twitter bio to “Former Member” of the party was the first clue this morning that she had quit. The Assam leader is in Kolkata to meet with Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee. “She will be the face of the Trinamool in Assam if she joins,” said Trinamool Congress sources.

Sushmita Dev wrote on Sunday to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, offering no reason for quitting her party of three decades but talking about a “new chapter of public service”. The daughter of Assam Congress stalwart and influential Bengali leader Santosh Mohan Dev, she was the chief of the Congress's women's wing, the All India Mahila Congress.

She had earlier been an MP from Silchar in Assam, the stronghold of her father.

Ms Dev was among the Congress leaders whose Twitter handle was locked over a post showing images of the parents of a nine-year-old girl who was allegedly raped and murdered in Delhi.

The images were shared by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi after he met with the parents, and many tweeted it.

As Rahul Gandhi's account was blocked, several Congress leaders, including Ms Dev, changed their display picture to the Congress MP's in solidarity. The account was restored last week, after which the Congress posted “Satyameva Jayate”.
