Actor-turned politician Mithun Chaktaborty who was elected to the Rajya Sabha by Trinamool Congress(TMC), today resigned from the Upper House citing health reasons.

Mithun, whose alleged involvement in Saradha scam made news last year, had attended the Upper House for three days only.
He has written to the Chairman that because of his health condition he is not been able to fulfil his duty in Rajya Sabha and that is why he is relinquishing his seat, sources added. “He resigned from Rajya Sabha on health grounds.
