Abhishek Banerjee, Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s nephew, was anointed Trinamool Congress’ national general secretary even as CM Banerjee delivered a stern “zero-tolerance” message against corruption, urged her colleagues to shun “displays of power” and proposed implementation of the one-leader-one-post formula. TMC effected few other changes in key leadership roles at its first organisational meet after the massive assembly poll mandate, making trusted Abhishek aide Kunal Ghosh its state general secretary, actor Saayoni Ghosh its youth wing chief and Barrackpore MLA and director Raj Chakraborty the head of its cultural wing. The meeting did not take a stand on TMC-to-BJP turncoats’ pleas to be taken back.
