“It is not possible for me to work for the people if I remain in the CPI (M). I will join any party that gives me the right opportunity,” said the legislator.
Claiming that she had been insulted by the party’s district secretary, Niranjan Sihi, for trying to work independently for her constituency, Mondal said:
“He is using his position for personal gain.”

Sihi, when approached, said: “Tapasi Mondal’s accusations are unfounded. She is making excuses to join the BJP. We are expelling her from the party.”
Echoing him, the leader of the left-front legislature party, Sujan Chakraborty, said: “A week ago, he had told me categorically that he would not leave. If he betrays the party now, people will not forget him. No real Left leader can be influenced by the politics practiced by the BJP and TMC. “
