With Babul Supriyo’s victory over TMC’s Moon Moon Sen with 1.97 lakh votes, the Bollywood singer-turned-politician is once again likely to get a cabinet berth. Supriyo, 48, who was the Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Sector Enterprises in the Narendra Modi government, began his political career only in March 2014 when he was inducted into the BJP and promptly fielded by the party as its Lok Sabha candidate from Asansol. In 2014, he defeated Trinamool Congress bigwig Dola Sen.
