Ahead of the impending reshuffle of the Union Cabinet, Union Minister Babul Supriyo submitted his resignation on Wednesday.

Supriyo, the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, wrote on Facebook: “Yes, I have resigned from the Council Of Ministers !!  (As I had framed it earlier, “Asked to resign” may not be the right way to put it 😊) I thank Hon’ble Prime Minister for giving me the privilege to serve my country as a Member of his Council of Ministers.”

The Asansol MP further said he has always served his constituency to the best of his ability and was glad that there were no corruption charges against him.
