Declaring that she did not want to continue as chief minister, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said: "I said at the beginning of the meeting that I don't want to continue as the Chief Minister. I trying hard to convince my party," she told the meeting after a meeting of her party leaders called to discuss the reverses in the elections.
In the recently held Lok Sabha polls, TMC could win only 22 of the 34 Lok Sabha seats it had won in 2014. The BJP made deep inroads in the state this election by winning 18 states.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday also offered to resign from his post following the party's drubbing in Lok Sabha polls but it was unanimously rejected by the Congress Working Committee (CWC).
Commenting on the same, director-producer Anurag Kashyap took to his Twitter handle and wrote: "Mamta didi wanted to resign but party rejected offer. Rahul Gandhi wanted to resign but party rejected the offer. We wanted to act dumb and believe it but our intelligence rejected it.. P.S. I didn’t want to tweet this but twiterrati rejected my intention." [sic]
