New Delhi: Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Kalyan Banerjee offered to resign from the party on Friday as reports suggested that party leader Mamata Banerjee was likely to issue showcause notices to the MP.
Reports suggested that Banerjee was likely to issue showcause notices to party MPs Sudip Bandopadhyay and Kalyan Banerjee for diverging from the party line and supporting the Lokpal Bill.
Mamata seemed furious that the two MPs took the decision without consulting her. The two had met Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee before taking the decision.
