Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay of the Calcutta High Court announced his resignation today, accompanied by his declaration of joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Speaking at a press conference held in Kolkata at 2:25 pm, Gangopadhyay emphasised that he sees the BJP as the sole national party capable of challenging the dominance of the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal. He clarified his decision by stating his reluctance to align with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) due to his religious beliefs and his aversion to joining the Congress, citing its dynastic nature, which sidelines accomplished leaders like Jairam Ramesh. #JusticeGangopadhyay #CalcuttaHighCourt #Resignation #BJP #JoiningPolitics #PoliticalTransition #JudicialResignation #PoliticalShift #BJPEntry #IndianPolitics #BengalPolitics #LegalNews #JudicialAffairs #BJPPolitics #JudicialResignation #JudicialCareer #PoliticalMove #BJPMembership #LegalTransition #JudicialDeparture ~PR.152~ED.101~
