Amid the ongoing internal strife in the Trinamool Congress, its supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has convened an emergency meeting of the party’s top officials at her residence on Saturday evening, sources in the ruling camp said.
According to the sources, just six senior leaders — national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, secretary-general Partha Chatterjee, state party president Subrata Bakshi, and ministers Firhad Hakim, Aroop Biswas and Chandrima Bhattacharya — have been asked to attend the meeting.
“The meeting will be held tomorrow at 5 pm to discuss the present political situation in the party. The statements and counterstatements that are being given by some leaders have not gone down well with the party supremo. This has to stop somewhere. Our party supremo is likely to give out a message to all the leaders,” a senior TMC leader said on condition of anonymity.
