Supriyo resigned after leaving BJP in September and joined Trinamool Congress. He had written letter to the speaker on October 1,2021 seeking appointment for meeting on September 20, which was acknowledged as “received”.
He was appointed as the minister of state for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, from which post he resigned in August following the cabinet reshuffle. He said in a Facebook post that there is difference of opinion between the senior leaders of West Bengal BJP and him, and that the opinion of senior leaders was causing harm to the party.
He resigned from BJP saying that he is leaving politics and will also resign from the post of MP. But on September 18,2021 he joined TMC claiming that he is coming back to serve the people of Bengal.
