Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday made major organizational changes in TMC, 34 days after assuming power for the third time in West Bengal. Under this, he has appointed his nephew and party MP Abhishek Banerjee as the National General Secretary. Earlier, the responsibility of general secretary was with Dinesh Trivedi, who had joined the BJP before the elections.
Even after allegations of familyism in the assembly elections, this bet of Mamta is being told as Abhishek’s entry into national politics. Abhishek is currently the MP from Diamond Harbor. Diamond Harbor is the same area where BJP national president JP Nadda’s convoy was attacked by TMC supporters.
Along with this, Mamta has given Kunal Ghosh as the State General Secretary and Bengali actress Sayoni Ghosh as the command of the State Youth Wing of the party. Sayoni Ghosh has also contested from Asansol, although she had to face defeat. Before Sayoni, the youth wing was commanded by Abhishek. At the same time, Kunal Ghosh was still performing the responsibility of the spokesperson of the party. He is also said to be close to Abhishek.
Kunal Ghosh’s name in Saradha scam
Kunal Ghosh has also been a Rajya Sabha MP of TMC. However, he is also named in the Saradha chit fund scam. Recently, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had also issued him a notice for questioning. Ghosh, who was earlier CEO of Saradha Media, a part of Saradha Group, was arrested by the police in 2013 for his alleged involvement in the chit fund scam case. He was then suspended for allegedly anti-party activities.
One person one post principle implemented in TMC
Senior party leader Partha Chatterjee said that in the meeting of the TMC Working Committee, it has been decided that a person will have only one post. He will not be given any other post.
