Dive In

They cut your power supply, there were threats of attack on you. Your job was snatched by Mamata Banerjee or Abhishek Banerjee. At that point of your life, I kept the promise I made to you—transferred 50% of my salary to your account every month so that you don’t have to ask for it. Now you have joined hands with those who had harmed you in the past.

That’s BJP MLA Saumitra Khan announcing his decision to send a divorce notice to his wife, Sujata Mondal. The reason for the big split: She committed the unforgivable sin of joining the enemy, i.e. Trinamool. Mondal’s response: “Family and politics can’t be on the same platform, so let’s not talk on those lines. It’s my decision today and who guarantees that Saumitra Khan won’t join me in future?” Snap!
