Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Saumitra Khan has decided to send a divorce notice to his wife Sujata Mondal Khan just hours after the latter joined the Trinamool Congress ahead of the 2021 West Bengal Assembly elections. Saumitra Khan is the president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha and MP from Bishnupur.
Sujata Mondal Khan joined the TMC earlier in the day in Kolkata, revealing the feud in the family in the open. Now, Bishnupur MP Saumitra Khan has decided to send a divorce notice to Sujata Mondal Khan. Besides deciding to send a divorce notice, Sujata Khan’s car and house security at Barjora in Bishnupur have been withdrawn.
After joining the TMC, Sujata Mondal Khan said the BJP does not give due respect and honour to people. “Now there are only opportunist and tainted people on the top. There was no respect in the BJP for me,” Sujata Mondal Khan said.
Sujata Mondal Khan also took a dig at the BJP, saying, “I don’t understand what kind of soap is it that is used to purifying the tainted leaders.” “I had fought for BJP and my husband [Saumitra Khan]…we got them [BJP and Saumitra Khan] a victory in the Lok Sabha polls. I think they have only been opportunists.”‘PM A PM, NOT CM CANDIDATE’
Taking another dig at BJP, Sujata Mondal Khan said the saffron party has six chief ministerial candidates and 13 deputy chief minister faces. “Prime minister is a prime minister. He [Narendra Modi] is not a chief ministerial candidate,” Sujata Mondal Khan said.
“When we ask them [BJP] about the leadership, there is no answer. How can there be a value of people where you do not know the leadership,” she said.
YOU WERE RESPECTED AS BJP MP’S WIFE, SAYS SAUMITRA
Responding to Sujata Mondal Khan switching over to the TMC ahead of the West Bengal Assembly elections, Saumitra Khan blamed the Trinamool Congress for breaking his family. He also said his wife was respected as a BJP MP’s wife.
“You were respected as a BJP MP’s wife. TMC can break families…You [Sujata Mondal Khan] have got me votes and are a part of my victory. but I now release her from my name and surname,” an emotional Saumitra Khan said and went on to add: “Those who broke our house…we will not forgive them.”
Addressing a press conference, Saumitra Khan said, “You [Sujata] can take my property if you want it. Otherwise, I will donate it to the public.”
‘YOU’VE MADE A MISTAKE SUJATA, MY ONLY WEAKNESS’
Saumitra Khan also challenged the TMC ahead of the polls and said Mamata Banerjee’s party would be thrown out of the state.
Addressing Sujata Mondal again, Saumitra Khan said, “I request my wife Sujata to stay well and fight out. You have made a mistake, Sujata. I want to tell Abhishek Banerjee, Sujata was my only weakness and now I will sacrifice everything for my party [BJP].”
Saumitra Khan then announced that he would be sending a divorce notice to Sujata Mondal. “I will be sending a divorce notice. I will fight TMC. I want to tell TMC that you should be ashamed for breaking my family. There have been so many fights but [I] did not think this will happen.”
