Mimi Chakraborty resigns as Trinamool MP

Actor and Trinamool Congress MP Mimi Chakraborty has submitted her resignation to West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, but it has not been accepted yet.

A popular filmstar in Bengal, she was elected from Jadavpur in 2019 on a Trinamool Congress ticket. She had defeated political heavyweights - the BJP's Anupam Hazra and the CPM's Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya.

The MP from Jadavpur says she has differences with the local Trinamool leadership. She has said that the Chief Minister assured her that she will take care of the issues.

“I had a dream for Jadavpur, but I faced a lot of hurdles. It is very easy to malign a person when he or she comes from a film background, saying that he or she does not work,” she said.

“I won't say I regret coming into politics. It has given me a lot... My agenda is not to embarrass my party but I will not compromise with my mental peace,” she said, adding that she can't reveal the problems she was facing.
