Trinamool leaders gear up to address grievances of people
Kolkata: In a bid to enhance their contacts with the common people and to fast-track the process of addressing their grievances, if any, senior Trinamool Congress leaders have started to spend four hours daily at Trinamool Bhavan. The instruction in this regard was given by Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, at a meeting with senior party leaders at her Kalighat residence on May 31.
The party has already finalised the day to day lists of the leaders who will be camping at the party office from 3 pm to 7 pm every day.
"Our party chief has undertaken massive development work in the state. But in spite of that the party's performance, particularly in North Bengal and Jangalmahal, has been far below expectations. Banerjee feels that party leaders will have to enhance their reach among the masses," a senior Trinamool Congress leader said, on conditions of anonymity.
As per schedule, state Backward Class Welfare minister Rajib Banerjee, who is an MLA from Domjur, Howrah, will camp on Monday, state Fire & Emergency Services minister and Bidhannagar MLA Sujit Bose on Tuesday, state Transport minister Suvendu Adhikari on Wednesday, state Panchayat minister Subrata Mukherjee on Thursday, state Power minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay on Friday, MP Abhisekh Banerjee on Saturday and minister of state for Health Chandrima Bhattacharjee on Sunday.
State Technical Education minister Purnendu Basu and minister of state for Information & Cultural Affairs Indranil Sen will spend some time in the party office every day in the morning. Banerjee has already brought some changes in the party's organisational level, particularly in the districts where the party's performance has not been good in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.
