Kolkata: Scrubbing off the VIP tag, which proved to a hurdle in securing bail, a humble jailed Trinamool minister Madan Mitra will be returning to his cell in Alipore Jail’s Mandir Ward.
Mitra, too desperate for bail, is going to resign from transport minister slot, said source. It is also heard that the minister might send his resignation to the party command in the coming week.
Madan who is currently undergoing treatment in SSKM hospital was denied bail by the Calcutta High Court on the pretext that he holds an key portfolio in the state government and is able to influence the ongoing probe against him in the Saradha Scam.
Madan who pitched high profile lawyer and former Law Minister during UPA regime Kapil Sibal to secure his bail was battered after Sibal too failed in his attempt.
