Must read


NEW DELHI: ‘Nominated’ Rajya Sabha member Swapan Dasgupta resigned from the upper House on Tuesday after being named as a BJP candidate in the West Bengal assembly polls, pre-empting a likely move by TMC to seek his disqualification for violating Rajya Sabha rules.
Dasgupta, who was named BJP’s candidate for Tarakeshwar seat on Sunday, took to Twitter to announce his resignation. “I have resigned from Rajya Sabha today to commit myself to the fight for a better Bengal. I hope to file my nomination as BJP candidate for the Tarakeshwar assembly seat in the next few days.” Sources said he has urged RS chairman Venkaiah Naidu to accept his resignation with effect from Wednesday.
