TMC MP Dinesh Trivedi announced resignation from Rajya Sabha on Friday. He said, “I am resigning from Rajya Sabha today. There is violence happening in my state. We cannot speak anything here.” “Grateful to my party that they’ve sent me here. I’m feeling suffocated that we’re not able to do anything over violence in the state. My soul tells me that if you can’t do anything sitting here, then you must resign. I will continue to work for people of West Bengal,”he added.
