Trinamool Congress announces full state committee in Tripura on Friday, two months before assembly elections.
Block committee has also been created. Rajib Banerjee has been appointed as the state in-charge.
TMC Tripura President Pijush Kanti Biswas, MP Sushmita Dev and Ashish Lal Singh are in the selection committee.
The election management committee also announced.
According to the Trinamool sources, those who defected from the party during Subal Bhowmik’s tenure as state president have been brought back.
Of course Ashish Lal Singh is prominent among them.
A total of 111 people gets place in Tripura Pradesh Trinamool Congress State Committee.
Trinamool Congress created new history with 20 percent of the votes in the municipal elections.
According to the political analysts since then Trinamool has only fallen behind in Tripura.
Congress and CPIM are seen as the main opposition in the by-elections. Trinamool’s vote percentage again dropped to 2 percent in a few months.
In Tripura, the last few months have seen the Congress turn around. Especially since Sudip Roy Barman rejoined the Congress, the top leadership of Trinamool is seems not giving special importance to Tripura.
Abhishek Banerjee is not visiting Tripura, but Abhishek Banerjee visited Meghalaya twice in a month. Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee also visited in Meghalaya along with Abhishek.
On the other hand, Trinamool has left Tripura to Rajib Banerjee and Sushmita Dev. Subal Bhowmik was made the state president after the formation of the new unit. He was ousted as soon as the possibility of his joining the BJP arose.
Then the post of state president of Trinamool Congress was vacant for three and a half months. Most recently, former Congressman Pijush Kanti Biswas has been appointed as the state president.
After the failure in the by-elections, Abhishek was not seen in Tripura. Mamata Banerjee has not visited Tripura even once after forming the new unit which erupted many questions.
In 2016 Trinamool once tried to form a unit in Tripura. The Trinamool became the main opposition party overnight by changing the 6 members assembly team including Sudip Roy Barman of the Congress.
But before the election the entire Trinamool unit joined BJP.
