Agartala: Two days after winning the by-elections from Bhabanipur assembly seat in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has announced her decision to start preparations in Tripura.
The TMC on Wednesday announced the launch of its state steering committee, to be headed by Subal Bhowmik, who was appointed the convener of the state committee, and the state youth committee.
Sushmita Dev, who recently left the Congress to join the TMC, has also been included in the newly-formed committee under Bhowmik.
Others who are part of the state committee are Ashish Lal Singh, and Baptu Chakraborty, who had recently left the Congress and joined the TMC, has been given the responsibility of state convener of the youth committee.
The newly-formed Trinamool Steering Committee in Tripura has a total of 19 members. Apart from Bhowmik and Dev, the other members are Prakash Chandra Das, Ashish Lal Singh, Krishnadhan Nath, Dr Debabrata Deb Roy, Abdul Basit Khan, Tridib Dutt, Sampa Das, Kalamohan Tripura, Maman Khan, Nilkant Sinha, Sharmistha Dev Sarkar, Ravi Chowdhury, Shivani Sengupta, Idris Mia, Anjan Chakraborty, Anita Das and Malin Jamatia.
The Trinamool Youth Committee in Tripura has a total of 11 members. Apart from Chakraborty, others include Rakesh Das, Shantanu Saha, Zakir Hossain, Uttam Kalai, Mrinal Kanti Debnath, Sumon Dey, Chiranjit Pal, Solanki Sengupta, Dipant Chakraborty and Amit Devvarma.
“The All India Trinamool Congress under the inspiration and guidance of Hon’ble Chairperson Smt. Mamata Banerjee is pleased to announce the Tripura Trinamool Congress State Steering Committee and the State Youth Committee. We wish the very best to all the appointees for their future endeavors,” the official statement reads.
Trinamool Congress started its journey in Tripura in 1999 holding the hands of former chief minister of Tripura, Sudhir Ranjan Majumder. However, it could not make a difference in the last two decades. The TMC filed nominations in 24 seats in the 2018 assembly elections, but could not win a single seat and secured a mere 0.3 per cent vote share.
