New Delhi (21.06.2022): Former Union minister Yashwant Sinha has resigned from TMC and is likely to be fielded as joint opposition candidate for the Presidential election. Sharad Pawar and Gopal Gandhi have already declined to contest the Presidential election. Sinha tweeted, “I am grateful to Mamata ji for the honour and prestige she bestowed on me in the TMC. Now a time has come when for a larger national cause I must step aside from the party to work for greater Opposition unity. I am sure she approves of the step.” Sinha will attend the meeting convened by Pawar in Delhi.
