Let us tell you that to remain the CM of West Bengal, Mamta Banerjee will have to become a member of the Legislative Assembly of the state before November 5. Otherwise he will have to leave his post. According to Article 164(4) of the Constitution, if a person is not a member of the Legislative Assembly and becomes the Chief Minister, then he has to become a member of the Legislative Assembly or Legislative Council of the state within 6 months. West Bengal does not have a Legislative Council, so Mamata Banerjee will have to become a member of the Legislative Assembly.
