Babul Supriyo likely to be made union minister

Singer-turned-BJP MP Babul Supriyo is likely to be inducted in the union council of ministers Sunday, party leaders said.



Kolkata: Singer-turned-BJP MP Babul Supriyo is likely to be inducted in the union council of ministers Sunday, party leaders said.

Supriyo, who pulled off a big surprise win in the Lok Sabha polls from Asansol seat in West Bengal, would become the sole representative in Narendra Modi's ministry from the state once he takes oath.

State Bharatiya Janata Party president Rahul Sinha said Modi had himself called Supriyo and informed him of the decision to make him a minister.

" It can safely be assumed that Babul Supriyo will be a Minister at the centre. He will meet the prime minister tomorrow and his portfolio would be announced then.

"Yesterday (Friday) I was informed about the development by the party leadership. The prime minister had also called Babul Supriyo," Sinha said here.

The Bollywood singer, who has given hits like "Pari Hai Ek Pari...", "Chanda Chamke..." and "Dil Ne Dil Ko Pukara...", was picked up by the party to contest from Asansol in the Lok Sabha election.

Supriyo was unavailable for comment, but a close aide said he would be travelling to Delhi for the swearing in.

"I hope so," the aide replied, when asked if Supriyo would be made a central minister.
