The Trinamool Congress on Tuesday nominated former Lok Sabha MP Sushmita Dev to Rajya Sabha.

“Mamata Banerjee’s vision to empower women and ensure their maximum participation in politics shall help our society to achieve much more!” TMC said in a tweet.

Sushmita Dev, who resigned from the Congress party, had joined the All India Trinamool Congress on August 16.

Sushmita Dev is the daughter of Assam Congress stalwart and influential Bengali leader late Santosh Mohan Dev.

Earlier, she had been elected as an MP from the Silchar seat, a stronghold of her father, on Congress ticket.
