My last day in Parliament: TMC MP Dev posts online amid speculations over his political future

New Delhi/IBNS: Bengali film superstar-parliamentarian Dev's recent post on Instagram has strengthened the speculations that the Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP is looking for an exit route from politics.

On the last day of the Budget session of Parliament, Dev spoke about the Ghatal Masterplan for which he has remained vocal for years.

Speaking in Bengali, Dev said, "This is a problem which exists in Ghatal (Dev's constituency) since 1950. It is the problem of people who suffer due to floods. It's not a problem of TMC or BJP. I would request the Prime Minister to execute the Ghatal Masterplan.

"No matter if I stay MP or not, I want the problem to be solved."

Captioning the video, the actor-MP wrote, "My last day in the Parliament.. Thanku Didi. Thanku to the people of Ghatal Loksabha."

On Wednesday, Dev, who has recently resigned from three government posts in Ghatal, posted in an Instagram story, "Few More Hours."

Meanwhile, in an unverified audio clip, which went viral on social media, two people were heard talking about cut-money culture in Ghatal Lok Sabha constituency.

IBNS did not verify the audio clip.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from West Bengal, Hiran Chatterjee, has claimed Dev, a massively popular star in West Bengal, is involved in corruption.

Hiran told India Today, "I have always said that Dev is involved in corruption. Now the audio clip of a TMC leader from Ghatal named Shankar Doloi is viral, where he claims that Dev took a cut of 30 per cent from him.

"He said that he even informed Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, but nothing happened."

Earlier, reports had claimed Dev, a two-term MP from Ghatal, was reluctant to contest in the Lok Sabha elections 2024.

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee is reportedly keen to field Dev in the upcoming elections, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP will seek a third consecutive tenure.
