Former Tripura Congress President Pijush Kanti Biswas, who recently joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Sunday, has been appointed the new TMC State President.
Pijus Kanti Biswas, a senior lawyer at Tripura’s High Court, resigned from his position as President of Tripura’s Congress last August.
On December 7 this year, Pijush Kanti Biswas joined the Tripura TMC in presence of the party’s national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee.
“I offer my sincere gratitude to Mamata Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee for appointing me as the party’s state president. I will try my level best to live up to their expectations,” the newly appointed Tripura TMC chief Pijush Kanti Biswas said.
He added that the TMC would participate in the Tripura Assembly elections next year.
Pijush said he had a meeting with supreme TMC Mamata Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee and held discussions on the party’s electoral strategy for the Tripura polls.
They assured me that they would fully support the unseated government led by the BJP in Tripura, he said.
