Kolkata, Sep 23 (): After walking out of the UPA government on Friday, six Trinamool Congress ministers quit their ministry from Mamata’s regiment submitting the resignation to chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday.
The mutual relationship between the Congress and Trinamool Congress in the state has been closed following the ministers’ resignation. The Congress is likely to claim the position of the opposition in West Bengal, said sources. The six ministers include Manas Bhunia and Abu Hena who hurried towards Writers’ Building on Saturday noon to offer their resignation to the party supremo Mamata Banerjee.
Post their resignation, the ministers headed to Raj Bhavan and expressed their willingness to resign their party posts and submitted their resignations to governor M.K.Narayanan. While talking to reporters on Saturday, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said that the ruling Congress in the centre had exposed to be big-headed, but she is also such a person who never fear for this and will launch an extensive movement in my state against the Central government.
The Congress and Trinamool Congress will be contesting each other in the panchayat elections in the state of West Bengal. After submitting the resignation former minister Manas Bhunia said that they were often praised for their work by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
“We have been working for long with the Chief Minister who had achieved a number of victories,” said Bhunia by praising Banerjee.
Since some of the municipalities in the state were being run by both Congress and the Trinamool, it had a bad impact on its functioning after the misunderstanding prevailed between both the parties.
Things have changed completely after Mamata decided to withdraw the UPA, pushing the fortune of the municipal corporation to a standstill. Even the Siliguri Municipal Corporation was under the control of both the parties.
Meanwhile, sources said the mayor post of the north Bengal belongs to the Congress, and the deputy mayor’s post is being taken care by the Trinamool.
