“Today’s humiliation cannot dampen our spirit! We will fight back and win. Conspiracies and treachery wont last long. People of Behala East love you and that is your greatest strength,” Baisakhi Banerjee says in the Facebook post.

The former Mayor of Kolkata who had joined the BJP after quitting TMC has reportedly sent a letter to BJP state president Dilip Ghosh informing the party leadership of the resignation. BJP has fielded actress Payal Sarkar, who recently joined the party, in Behala East.
