Setback for Mamta before assembly elections, another minister resigns

New Delhi: Assembly elections are due in West Bengal shortly. But, one by one the MLAs from Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress are resigning. Recently, Forest Minister Rajib Banerjee has resigned from his post. The cabinet minister has not cited any reason for his decision.

But it is believed that there was a tussle between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the recent assembly elections to be held in March-April. Due to which Rajib Banerjee was forced to take such a big decision.

Rajib Banerjee in his letter to the Chief Minister said, “I am sorry to say that I am resigning from my post today, on January 22, 2021.” Later his resignation was accepted by Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar.

Please tell that he is the third minister to resign from the state government in a month.

“I was upset and mentally hurt for a while and I had to take this step,” Banerjee told media persons today after her resignation. It pained me and broke my heart, but I had to do it, “he said.” I am grateful to Mamata Banerjee for guiding me in politics. I reiterate my commitment to work for the people of Bengal. “

However, after Rajiv Banerjee’s resignation the speculation market has become hot in the politics of West Bengal. Will he also join the Bharatiya Janata Party like Shubhendu Adhikari, or join another party?

There is an atmosphere of stampede in the ruling party in West Bengal at this time, which is directly visible to the BJP. However, to keep the atmosphere warm, the BJP would also like to gradually move into the Trinamool Congress. The party has claimed that several MLAs of the ruling Trinamool Congress are in touch with it, but it is in no hurry. The upcoming visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are expected to strengthen BJP’s Mission Bengal.
