West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said that she wanted to quit as Bengal chief minister. She further said that she wanted to remain as party president. Banerjee said that the chair was not important for her but the party symbol was. “I told at the beginning of the meeting that I don’t want to continue as the Chief Minister,” Banerjee said while addressing a press conference.
The TMC chief, however, said that the central forces worked against her in this elections. “An emergency situation was created. Hindu-Muslim division was done and votes were divided. We complained to the Election Commission but nothing was looked into,” she said. The remarks come days after the Lok Sabha results were announced.
