Kolkata: Putting into uncertainty the fate of the recently-held polls to four local bodies, West Bengal State Election Commissioner S.R. Upadhyay on Tuesday tendered his resignation.
Upadhyay, who has been facing severe criticism from opposition parties over the violence-marred polls to the municipal corporations of Bidhannagar, Asansol and parts of Howrah held on Saturday, tendered his resignation to Governor K.N. Tripathi.
Confirming the move, Tripathi said he has forwarded the resignation for the views of the Mamata Banerjee government.
