Announcing her resignation at a press conference here, Banerjee, said, “I am sending my resignation letters to all concerned.”
Banerjee also threatened to ‘paralyse’ life in the State for an indefinite period, beginning from Monday.
“It is no longer possible to carry on political activities in West Bengal under the oppressive, one-party rule of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)”, Banerjee said.
Saturday remained a day of swift developments in West Bengal over the ongoing law and order crisis in Nandigram, with Centre sending one battalion of paramilitary forces in the State.
“Government of India has been keeping a watch on the situation in Nandigram area in West Bengal and has also been in touch with the State Government, calling upon them to take urgent steps to restore normalcy in the area,” a Union Home Ministry release stated.
Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil also spoke to West Bengal Chief Minister Chief Buddhadeb Bhatacharjee and urged him to take immediate steps to ensure the return of people back to their villages, who have been displaced from their homes by the simmering tension there. (ANI)
