Somen Mitra resigns as MP
Trinamool Congress MP Somen Mitra resigned from the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, reports said.
Mitra said the state government has deviated from the promises it had made before coming to power in the state.
"Today, you can see the language used by the leadership is clearly an echo of Hitler's Nazi Germany...I can't adjust to the politics followed by the state government," Mitra told media.
Mitra might re-join the Congress.
"I will re-join the Congress if they welcome me...I feel that it is only the Congress that can keep the country united," he said.
In 2009, Mitra, who had fought the general polls in a TMC ticket, had won from the Diamond Harbour Lok Sabha constituency in West Bengal.
