Kolkata: Popular Bengali actor and TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty on Thursday said she has resigned as a parliamentarian, asserting that "politics is not my cup of tea". Chakraborty, a first-time MP from Jadavpur, went to the state assembly in the afternoon to meet TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. 

"Today, I met our party chief. I had submitted my resignation to her on February 13. I have understood in

all these years that politics is not my cup of tea," she told reporters. It was, however, not clear whether Banerjee accepted Chakraborty's resignation. Asked why she tendered her resignation to Banerjee and not to the Lok Sabha Speaker as per norms, Chakraborty said, "Once I get the nod from the TMC, I will submit it to the Speaker." The development comes months ahead of the general elections.
