20 Member working committee formed to address growing dissent in TMC

TMC Chairperson Mamata Banerjee on Saturday formed a 20 member working committee to stem growing discord in her party.
Senior TMC leader Partha Chatterjee said that Banerjee will announce the name of office-bearers of the party.
The announcement is seen as a measure to cool down the disgruntled TMC leaders and workers and assert Banerjee’s supreme control over the party.
In a meeting at CM’s residence Chatterjee said, “After Mamata Banerjee was re-elected as the chairperson of the party, she had announced a small committee to look after party affairs. Today there was a meeting of that committee, and in that meeting, she has announced the new national working committee of the party”.
“Mamata Banerjee will later appoint the new office bearers and then it would be sent to the election commission,” he added
Senior stalwart leaders who found a berth in working committee include- Amit Mitra, Partha Chatterjee, Subrata Bakshi, Sudip Bandopadhyay, Abhishek Banerjee, Anubrata Mondal, Aroop Biswas, Firhad Hakim and Yashwant Sinha.
“Till Mamata Banerjee announces the new list of office bearers, all the other posts of the last committee cease to exist,” stated another senior TMC leader.
