Kolkata: Trinamool Congress on Thursday sacked the Cabinet Minister Partha Chatterjee following his alleged involvement in the West Bengal School Staff Recruitment scam.

Chatterjee was holding portfolios of Commerce and Industry, Parliamentary Affairs, Information Technology and Electronics, and Public Enterprises and Industrial Reconstruction in the state Cabinet of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting convened by the Chief Minister.

Chatterjee, who is known to be a loyalist of CM Banerjee,  also holds the political office of General Secretary of West Bengal of the All India Trinamool Congress. However, there is no information regarding his removal from the party.

After several revelations in the case relating to the teacher’s job scam, several members within the party objected his presence and demanded for his removal.

Few days earlier, the Chief Minister made a statement saying that if someone is guilty, they should be awarded punishment.

The statement cleared the Trinamool Congress’ stand on the case against Partha Chatterjee.
