I have no relation with Trinamool Congress : Kabir SumanAugust 10th, 2010 - 12:04 am ICT by IANS
Agartala, Aug 9 (IANS) “I have no relation with the Trinamool Congress (TMC),” singer-turned-parliamentarian Suman Chattopadhyay said here Monday.
“I have no party. If I could leave the membership of Lok Sabha, I would be the happiest person,” Chattopadhyay, who is now known as Kabir Suman, told reporters in Agartala. He is an MP of the Trinamool Congress.
He said : “In India, 32 percent people either get to eat one meal a day or remain hungry. In every hour one farmer commits suicide.”
Claiming himself to be a Marxist, the 62-year-old MP said : “The Left Front in West Bengal did not use me because I was not a sycophant or slave of any party.”
Suman Chattopadhyay came to Agartala Sunday to perform songs at a cultural function here.
Suman changed the face of modern Bengali music in the 1990s with the “jeebonmukhi” (human friendly) songs, writing and singing about people and their lives.
