Abhishek Banerjee reappointed as TMC national general secretary

TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee on Friday formed a new officer bearers’ committee, reappointing her nephew Abhishek Banerjee as the party’s national general secretary and veteran leader Yashwant Sinha as its vice-president.

Senior TMC leaders Subrata Bakshi and Chandrima Bhattacharya, too, have also been given the post of national vice-presidents.

Among others, TMC minister Aroop Biswas has been made the treasurer, and Kolkata mayor Firhad Hakim the in-charge of coordination.

Banerjee had last week dissolved the erstwhile national office bearers’ committee and the portfolios that came with it, amid a growing internal strife between the old guard and the young leaders. She then formed a 20-member working committee, packed with party veterans.

Meanwhile, Abhishek’s reappointment was seen by political observers as a confirmation that he was the heir-apparent in the party.

The TMC boss also seemed to have mollified old-timers by giving them plum posts in the organisation, thus stifling the growing clamour for ‘one party, one post’ by some of the the younger leaders in the party.
