Srinjoy was under pressure: Derek


Kolkata: Within hours of TMC MP Srinjoy Bose’s resignation from the party, the National Spokesperson and Chief Whip in Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brein gave his statement on the move. This is what he had to say:

“It is Srinjoy’s personal choice. It is his prerogative. It is his democratic right.We have been saying for some time now that he has been put under tremendous pressure by the party in power at the Centre. He was released on bail yesterday. He resigned today. Did this pressure lead to some coordination? We are happy that he got “freedom” yesterday.

The Rajya Sabha seat which becomes vacant will be filled by the All India Trinamool Congress. We will soon announce the name of a party member who will then become a member of the Rajya Sabha.

We wish Srinjoy well in all that he does. We wish him a speedy recovery. Our warm wishes to him and his entire family.”

Derek O’Brein tweeted and said this on Thursday.
