She also met Rahul Gandhi at the Delhi airport when he returned from Srinagar. Sources said that after joining Trinamool, Sushmita may now become the party’s Tripura in-charge, with assembly elections due in the state next year. Here, the TMC is using all its might. Sushmita’s father Santosh Mohan Dev, a Bengali who hailed from the state of Assam, had won the Lok Sabha elections twice from Tripura West seat. He had also won five times from Assam’s Silchar seat.  Sushmita Dev was furious with the party’s seat-sharing in the alliance with the AIUDF during the Assam assembly elections this year, and had threatened to quit the party.After joining the TMC, the former MP thanked party chief Mamata Banerjee in a tweet and said: “Will give it all I have got…” She signed off with “#KhelaHobe”.

Will give it all I have got…. @MamataOfficial thank you🙏🏻#KhelaHobe
