Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader and former Rajya Sabha MP Arpita Ghosh was appointed as the General Secretary of West Bengal Trinamool Congress Committee on Friday, informed a letter from the party president Subrata Bakshi.

“As desired by West Bengal Trinamool Congress Committee, I would like to inform you that you have been nominated as General Secretary of West Bengal Trinamool Congress Committee with immediate effect. I trust and hope you will work sincerely for the betterment of the organisation,” said the letter.

All India Trinamool Congress leader Arpita Ghosh had resigned from her post as a Rajya Sabha MP on Wednesday evening. Ghosh on Thursday asserted that she took the decision after deliberating with the party’s top leadership and was not forced by it to step down as claimed by some quarters.

Ghosh told reporters that she quit the Rajya Sabha as she wanted to devote more time to the organisational matters of the party.

The theatre activist turned politician, who was earlier a Lok Sabha member, said there are differences between being an MP of the Upper House of Parliament and that of the Lower House.

“When I was elected to the Rajya Sabha, the pandemic started and I didn’t get much chance to deliver as an MP. I think I would concentrate more on organisational affairs now. I can also devote more time to my passion – theatre – if I stay here (West Bengal),” she said.
