The Six Congress Ministers in Mamata Banerjee Government in West Bengal RESIGNED on Saturday
Kolkata: The six Congress ministers in the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal resigned on Saturday.
The Congress ministers met the chief minister to submit their resignations. They are also slated to meet Governor MK Narayanan to withdraw support to the state government.
“The resignation of the six Congress ministers is in reply to what the TMC ministers did in Delhi,” WBPCC president Pradip Bhattacharya told a press conference here.
The party leadership would also meet the Governor when given time to withdraw support and the change of status in the state Assembly, he said.
“The resignation of our ministers and withdrawal of support by us is also in protest against deteriorating law and order, growing crime against women and attack on Congress workers in the state,” he said.
Describing Trinamool’s withdrawal of support to UPA government as ‘unfortunate’, Bhattacharya said “the TMC chief is answerable to the people for this.”
Bhattacharya also described the praise of the Trinamool chief by BJP leaders as ‘a threat to the nation’ and alleged proximity of CPI(M) leaders to BJP leaders. via: india.com
