Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said she would resign if it was proved that she called up Union Home Minister Amit Shah after the Trinamool Congress (TMC) lost its national party status.
Speaking to reporters at the West Bengal state secretariat, Banerjee said her party’s name will remain All India Trinamool Congress.
“I will resign if it is proved that I had called up Amit Shah over TMC’s national status,” Banerjee told reporters, dismissing West Bengal leader of opposition Suvendu Adhikari’s claim that she had made the call.
On Tuesday, Adhikari had claimed that Banerjee had called up Amit Shah and requested him to revoke the decision after the Election Commission revoked the TMC’s national party status.
Banerjee also hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), claiming that it will not be able to win more than 200 seats in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The chief minister said the state administration will look into the complaint filed by veteran politician Mukul Roy’s son Subhrangshu about his father going missing.
