A day after quitting as MLA, rebel Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Suvendu Adhikari on Thursday resigned from the primary membership of the party. He tendered his resignation to party supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Adhikari, who submitted his resignation as an MLA to the Assembly Speaker yesterday, is expected to join the BJP soon.
In his resignation letter, Adhikari said he was “thankful for all the challenges and opportunities” and would always value the time he spent as a member of TMC.
Adhikari, who had been distancing himself from the party over the last few months and addressing rallies outside the party banner, is expected to join the BJP along with a few rebel TMC leaders when Home Minister Amit Shah visits West Bengal on December 19-20.
