The West Bengal Government on Thursday removed Partha Chatterjee, who has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a school jobs scam, from the ministry with immediate effect.

“Partha Chatterjee, minister in-charge, department of industry, commerce and enterprises, department of information technology and electronics, department of parliamentary affairs and department of public enterprises and industrial reconstruction, is hereby relieved of his duties as MIC of the aforesaid department with immediate effect,” an official order from the government said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will look after the portfolios held by Chatterjee for the time being.
