Another minister decides to resign over Nandigram

KOLKATA: In a jolt to the ruling Left Front, West Bengal PWD minister and RSP leader Kshiti Goswami on Saturday decided not to continue in the Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee cabinet and sought his party’s permission to resign over continuing violence in Nandigram.

“I want to resign because I cannot accept what is happening in Nandigram. We have been deceived by the CPM. One thing is being said, another thing is being done,” Goswami told reporters here.

“According to our party rule, I have to tell my party that I want to resign and have sought our secretary’s permission to do so,” he said.

When asked what he would do if the RSP refused to accept his resignation, Goswami replied, “Let me see what the party does.”

“I protested against violence which has been continuing for the last 10 months and the government had received enough time to act, but it was not sincere,” the minister added.
