Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member Dinesh Trivedi, during his speech on the discussion on the budget, said that he was resigning from the Rajya Sabha saying he had reached an inflection point and that he was “feeling suffocated.”
Dinesh Trivedi said that he was forced to make a decision, and had to follow his “conscience” after looking at “the kind of violence taking place in his state” of West Bengal and that he would continue to work for “Bengal and the country.”
Trivedi stood up in the middle of the discussion on the budget and said that while he was listening to the speakers around him, he had reached a point of reflection. “Why do we come into politics? We come into politics for the country,” Trivedi said, saying that his conscience had made a decision.
Trivedi said that the world had been looking towards how India would move forward in the pandemic, and while there were contributions, the “netritva” was from the Prime Minister, in sentences that are sure to lead to speculation of him joining the BJP ahead of the assembly elections.
