Resignation comes after the instruction of Party High Command
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) Member of Parliament (MP) Arpita Ghosh has resigned from the Rajya Sabha (RS) on the instruction of the party leadership. She was nominated to Rajya Sabha in March, 2020 after the defeat in Balurghat Lok Sabha Constituency. What is the reason for resignation ? There is a lot of speculations in political arena.
Arpita Ghosh’s resignation has been accepted by the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha. In a Parliamentary Bulletin, on September 15, Secretary General of Rajya Sabha wrote “Ms. Arpita Ghosh, an elected Member of the Council of States (Rajya Sabha), representing the state of West Bengal, resigned her seat in the Rajya Sabha and her resignation has been accepted by the Chairman”
However, Ms. Ghosh was among those suspended during the ruckus in Rajya Sabha in the recently concluded Parliament session where both MPs and Marshals were allegedly injured.
The theatre artist Arpita Ghosh has served as the Member of Parliament of the 16th Lok Sabha for Balurghat. But, in 2019 general election she was defeated by BJP candidate Sukanta Majumdar.
