Trinamool Does Not Have Any ‘Number 2’ Leader: Abhishek


Goaltore: National President of Trinamool Youth Congress, and MP, Abhishek Banerjee On Monday addressed a rally at Goaltore. This was a preparatory meeting ahead of the mega rally at Brigade Parade Grounds on January 19,2019.

He said that Trinamool does not have any ‘number two’ leader. We have only one leader – Mamata Banerjee. Rest of us are all workers of the party.

It is because of the tireless dedication and determination of our workers that Trinamool came back to power for a second term. It is because of the sacrifice, passion and spontaneity of our workers that the flag of Trinamool has reached every nook and corner of the State, Abhishek told.

Those who have helped us establish Trinamool in the grassroots, with the slogans of Mamata Banerjee Zindabad and Trinamool Congress Zindabad, are the real assets of the party. I have said this earlier. Our old workers have a bigger right on the party compared to others. It is also our responsibility to accommodate the new workers according to their capabilities. Mamata Banerjee has maintained that our party will be strengthened by the collective responsibility of old and new workers, Abhishek continued.

The new workers must be aware of the party’s history, and Mamata Banerjee’s struggles. If someone thinks they will join the party for benefits, the door of the party will be closed for them.

One day an MLA will become former MLA, MPs will become former MPs and ministers will also become former ministers. But the workers and supporters of the party will never become former. They are the present, and they are the future. This is their identity.
