Ripun Bora urged Sushmita Dev

Congress MP Ripun Bora requested Sushmita Dev to review her decision and discuss her issues with the party’s top leaders. 

He said: “Sushmita Dev was a dedicated Congress leader, never thought she would take such a decision. We were like family. If she had anything against the party, she should have discussed it. I request her to reconsider her decision & withdraw resignation.” 

Sushmita Dev, daughter of seven-time MP Santosh Mohan Dev, is likely to be portrayed as the Trinamool Congress party’s face in the state.

Susmita’s Twitter handle suspended recently along with other leaders of Congress party

In a piece of recent news, it was found that the microblogging site had blocked Twitter accounts of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and other handles related to the Congress party.

The suspension occurred after posting a photograph of the parents of a nine-year-old girl who was allegedly raped and murdered in Delhi; Sushmita Dev was among the Congress leaders whose Twitter handle was suspended recently.

Sonia Gandhi has not received any letter from Sushmita, says Congress leader

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said, “I tried speaking with Sushmita Dev, her phone was off. She was a dedicated Congress worker and perhaps is, even today. Congress president Sonia Gandhi has not received any letter from her. She’s mature enough to take her decisions, I can’t comment until I speak with her.”
