In March, Guha, the former deputy speaker of the West Bengal assembly had joined the BJP after she had been denied a ticket by the TMC. The four-time MLA from Satgachia had said that she was compelled to join the BJP because she did not get respect in the TMC.
“I could not convince myself and be a part of the party. I so regret the decision. As a fish cannot live without water, likewise I am unable to live without you,” she said.
Banerjee stormed to power for the third consecutive time, when TMC won 213 of the 292 seats while the BJP bagged 77 seats in the West Bengal assembly polls, the results of which were announced on May 2.
She also sought forgiveness from Banerjee.
“Please forgive me. If you don't forgive me, I will not live. I request you to allow me to spend the rest of my life under the shade of your love,” she said.
