Kolkata, July 28: Following arrest in the case involving the teacher recruitment scam, Partha Chatterjee, a minister for the Trinamool Congress (TMC), was removed on Thursday. The decision was made during a Cabinet meeting presided over by Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of Bengal.
The conference was held after calls for Chatterjee’s dismissal from all party and ministerial positions grew louder.
Kunal Ghosh, the TMC general secretary and spokesperson, had demanded Partha Chatterjee’s dismissal from the party and the cabinet earlier in the day.
