WB Forest Minister Rajib Banerjee Quits Mamata Cabinet, Had Voiced Discontent With Party On Facebook

In a fresh blow to Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal Forest Minister Rajib Banerjee on Friday resigned from the Trinamool Congress Cabinet. He had also expressed discontent from the party on a Facebook post.

"I regret to inform you that I hereby render my resignation from my office as Cabinet Minister being in-charge of Forest Department today," Banerjee said in a letter, which has been sent to West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at Raj Bhavan.

Banerjee was a legislator from Howrah's Domjur Assembly constituency, as well as the coordinator of Howrah district's Trinamool Congress.

Earlier, West Bengal transport and irrigation minister Suvendu Adhikari and Minister of State (MoS) for Sports and Youth Affairs and former cricketer Laxmi Ratan Shukla had resigned from the Banerjee-led state cabinet. While Adhikari joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Shukla said that he would pursue a career in cricket once again.
