Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress Saturday said Pawan Kumar Bansal and Ashwani Kumar, who from the union cabinet resigned a day earlier, have "mud on their faces".
Trinamool MP and former union minister Sougata Ray said the duo`s resignation has come "a little late".
Saying that his party had sought action against the two ministers, as it was "opposed to all issues regarding corruption", Roy said: "They have resigned, albeit a little late, without grace and with mud on their face".
Bansal and Ashwani Kumar resigned from the respective posts Friday night.
While Bansal`s nephew was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly taking a bribe for the appointment of a member of the Railway Board, Ashwani Kumar had come under attack after the Supreme Court was told that he had vetted the CBI report on the allocation of coal blocks.
