Kolkata: Trinamool Congress Supremo Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday decided to remove TMCP president Jaya Dutta due to admission extortion allegations.
Dutta, who was picked up for the post of TMCP president in May 2016, has failed to manage the student wing, the party feels. This has given rise to TMCP leaders indulging in all sorts of irregularities like embezzlement of college union funds, indulging in violence on campus, and now demanding money from students seeking admission to colleges
Earlier, Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) state president Jaya Dutta said that those who are involved in college admission racket must quit the party.
“We respect our party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, and we should follow her principles and ideology. But those who are meddling in the admission process in colleges should immediately leave the party as they have disrespected our ideology and maligned our image,” Dutta said after holding a meeting with TMCP representatives in Kolkata colleges.
