Port Blair: Working president of Andaman and Nicobar Islands Trinamool Congress Committee, Rupa Ray on Wednesday tendered resignation from the post today blaming the party's state unit chief for it.

Ray said the president of TC Andaman and Nicobar unit M R Bhakta had not allowed her to perform her duty.

 ''He (Bhakta) has failed to make the grass root level of T C strong in the Islands as he stays mostly in Kolkata,'' she said.

Ray is the wife of Andamans M P, B P Ray.
