Kolkata: 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 the party’s national vice-presidents.
Among others, TMC minister Aroop Biswas has been made the treasurer, and Kolkata mayor Firhad Hakim in charge of coordination.
Banerjee had last week dissolved the erstwhile national office bearers’ committee and the portfolios that came with it, amid growing internal strife between the old guard and the young leaders. She then formed a 20-member working committee, packed with party veterans.
