Shubendu Adhikari resigns from the ministerial post and gives a big blow to the Mamta government!
The ruling party Trinamool Congress has suffered a major setback ahead of next year's assembly elections in West Bengal. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's party TMC suffered this setback due to Shubhendu Adhikari resigning from the ministerial post.
Shubhendu Adhikari was the Transport Minister in the Mamta government. He has resigned from the post today after adopting a rebellious attitude for several days. Earlier, he resigned as Chairman of Hooghly River Bridge Commissioner.
Shubhendu Adhikari can now approach Bharatiya Janata Party. The BJP has already invited the officer to join the party. It is worth noting that assembly elections are due in West Bengal early next year. For this, various parties have started preparations on their behalf. The BJP and TMC have also stepped up their preparations.
