XtraTime Web Disk: Indian Football team’s former captain Bhaichung Bhutia today announced that he won’t be a part of All India Trinamool Congress as he is quiting the party.

The legendary footballer contested twice in elections as a Trinamool Congress candidate but unfortunately lost both the times. He announced this decision on the social media this morning.

“As of today I have officially resigned from the membership and all the official and political posts of All India Trinamool Congress party. I am no longer a member or associated with any political party in India,” Bhutia said in a tweet.

Bhutia had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Darjeeling and the 2016 West Bengal Assembly elections from Siliguri.

The TMC declined to comment on Bhutia resigning from the party.

Though as per sources, Bhutia had informed the TMC about his decision one month ago as he was no longer interested in being associated with any political party anymore.
