MP Dinesh Trivedi announces his resignation on the floor of the House (Rajya Sabha)

by Kolkata Today

Trinamool Congress MP and former Union Minister of Railway Dinesh Trivedi on Thursday said that he is resigning as Rajya Sabha MP as he feels suffocated in the Mamata Banerjee-led party. Addressing the Upper House, Dinesh Trivedi said that he was grateful to his party for sending him to the Rajya Sabha, but was feeling suffocated as he is not able to do anything to stop the violence in West Bengal.

Trivedi rose in the middle of the discussion on the budget and said that while he was listening to the speakers around him, he had reached a point of reflection. “Why do we come into politics? We come into politics for the country,” Trivedi said, saying that his conscience had made a decision.
Trivedi said that the world had been looking towards how India would move forward in the pandemic, and while there were contributions, the “netritva” was from the Prime Minister, in sentences that are sure to lead to speculation of him joining the BJP ahead of the assembly elections.
Dinesh Trivedi said that he would continue to “work for the country and for Bengal.”

While deciding on his resignation from the post, Dinesh Trivedi said,” I can’t speak here. I am feeling exhausted”. Dinesh Trivedi’s resignation comes as a headache for Trinamool Congress, ahead of the mega assembly elections.

Sukhendu Sekhar Ray, Chief Whip of the TMC in the Rajya Sabha  while reacting the issue said, “Trinamool” means grassroots. This will give us an opportunity to send a greassroots worker of ours soon to the Rajya Sabha.”
