Partha Bhowmik, told Kolkata24x7 that , “It is very fun to say this. There is no other connotation behind this saying. So there is no reason to take it otherwise. ”
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s brother Swapan Bandyopadhyay alias Babun, who hold official post of Mohunbagan. Again, the Chief Minister may be the supporter of Mohunbagan. So, this video may bring trouble for TMC unit. Although the state leadership keep their mouth shut.
