Kolkata: Late President Pranab Mukherjee’s son Abhijit Mukherjee, who is the Congress leader in Murshidabad and Ex-MP, is likely to join the Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress late on Monday.
The West Bengal ruling TMC in an invitation, though not given details, invited media for a party programme at Trinamool Bhavan saying ” All India Trinamool Congress will induct an eminent political personality at 4 PM ( Monday).”
Party’s parliamentary party leader Sudip Bandyopadhyay and state minister Partha Chatterjee will present there at the induction event. Former Congress MP from Jangipur Abhijit Mukherjee May hugely criticised the party leadership, headed by Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, for drawing a blank in the assembly poll. The Congress, which was the main opposition in the previous Assembly, had an electoral alliance with the CPI(M) led Left Front, drew a blank in the assembly poll for 292 seats.
Mr Mukherjee also recently batted for chief minister Mamata Banerjee, when the opposition parties held the ruling regime responsible for a fake vaccination case in Kolkata.
