Interestingly, another former Bengal captain Laxmi Ratan Shukla resigned from TMC last month as he wanted to concentrate on sports activities.
Shukla served as minister of state for Youth Affairs and Sports in the Mamata cabinet.
A host of Tollywood artistes — including Yash Dasgupta, Rudranil Ghosh, Papiya Adhikari and Soumili Ghosh Biswas — joined the saffron party earlier this month.
