New Delhi: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has
accepted the resignation of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata
Banerjee as a member of the House from Kolkata Dakshin
Parliamentary seat.

The Speaker received Banerjee`s resignation on October
nine and it was accepted with immediate effect, Deputy Speaker
Kariya Munda informed Lok Sabha.

Banerjee, who heads the Trinamool Congress, resigned from
the Lok Sabha seat after she was elected to the West Bengal
Assembly from Bhowanipore.

Banerjee, who was Union Railway Minister, took over as
Chief Minister in May after Trinamool Congress unseated the
over three-decade-old Left Front government in West Bengal.
