Emerging after the hour-long meeting, Dey Nath said no one had sent her and it was a courtesy call. "I share a long relation with Mastermosai(teacher)," she said. Bhattacharya is a teacher by profession. Villagers have expressed their disappointment at the change in Bhattacharya's portfolio.

Bhattacharya is popular in his locality for his pioneering role in the stir against Tata Motors small car plant that helped TMC capture power in Assembly polls in May last year ending the 34-year-long rule of Left Front in West Bengal.
