"Today I am resigning from Rajya Sabha membership, elected as a member of TMC. I also resign from all posts of TMC as a primary member," he said.

Roy said he will now "decide my future course of action."
He had on Monday announced his intentions to resign from the Upper House o f Parliament.
"Finally, I am going to hand over my resignation to the Vice President on October 11 and then I will tell the people of this country why I decided to end my long political innings with the TMC, the party I founded with many others," he had said.
Once the second-in-command in the TMC after West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, Roy was suspended for six years for "anti-party activities" last month.
He has since been meeting BJP leaders, giving rise to speculation that he may join the saffron party.
"I am not saying I will join the BJP or I will not join (it). Only time will tell. Please wait for a few days," he had said.
However, his detractors believed that without Banerjee, he will at best be a spent force.
"His political career is going to plunge and will soon cease to exist. His attempts to please the BJP will not bear any results," TMC secretary general Partha Chatterjee had char ged.
