West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021: Trinamool Congress Shibpur MLA Jatu Lahiri Quits Party After Being Dropped From Candidate List
Upset over not being nominated this time, TMC's Shibpur MLA Jatu Lahiri announced on Saturday that he has resigned from the party.
Talking to reporters, Mr Lahiri said that despite being a "loyal soldier" of the TMC he was ignored by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
"More than not getting the nomination, I am hurt that an outsider having no links with the electorate has got the nomination just days after being inducted into the party. It seems we are not required by the TMC anymore. I am leaving the organisation," he said.
TMC has nominated former cricketer Manoj Tiwary from the Shibpur seat in Howrah.
