Mamata Removes Partha Chatterjee From All Ministries After Cabinet Meeting

New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has removed Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Partha Chatterjee from the Bengal ministry following his arrest in the school jobs scam case. The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by the CM.

Partha Chatterjee has been removed from the portfolios of Commerce and Industry, Parliamentary Affairs, Information Technology and Electronics, and Public Enterprises and Industrial Reconstruction in the state Cabinet.

Mamata Banerjee has taken charge of the Commerce and Industry ministry.

Earlier in the day, TMC general secretary and spokesperson Kunal Ghosh had called for Partha Chatterjee’s expulsion from the party and the ministry.

“Partha Chatterjee should be removed from ministry and all party posts immediately. He should be expelled. If this statement considered wrong, party has every right to remove me from all posts. I shall continue as a soldier of @AITCofficial,” he said in a tweet on Thursday.

The ED on Wednesday recovered another Rs 28.90 crore in cash, over 5 kg of gold and several documents from the second apartment of Partha Chatterjee’s aide. The agency had earlier found Rs 21.90 crore in cash, Rs 56 lakh in foreign currency and gold worth Rs 76 lakh from his aide’s house.
