Mukul’s love ‘lost’ on Valentine’s Day


Kolkata: Valentine’s Day did not turn out to be a loveable affair within the TMC party. Mukul Roy’s wings were cut by the party on Saturday. The All India Gen Secretary of TMC, Mukul Roy was in the news of late for a speculative distance which grew between him and Mamata Banerjee. Somewhat cementing the rumour, the Education Minister of the State, Partha Chatterjee addressed the press and said that Subrata Bakshi, another TMC leader has been appointed with additional charges of being the All India General Secretary of TMC along with Mukul Roy. As a result, of which the once TMC ace, Mukul will share his office and responsibility with Subrata Bakshi henceforth.

Partha Chatterjee also added that Subrata Mukherjee has been given the charge of Tripura. Derek O’Brien will oversee the party’s organisation in North East and Kerala. Suvendu Adhikari will oversee Assam. Dinesh Trivedi appointed Vice President of the party. Derek O’Brien and Kalyan Banerjee will keep in touch with like-minded parties. Chatterjee also added that Derek O’Brien, Firhad Hakim and Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar elevated to the National Committee of the party.

Partha Chatterjee said that issues related to Municipal elections were discussed today. We have formed committees for the same, said Partha. Presidents of various district committees, heads of frontal organisations were present here today. It is to be noted that Mukul Roy did not appear or participate in the meeting today.
