TMC appoints Rajya Sabha MP and ex-MLA as party's Goa unit co-in-charge
Kolkata: The TMC on Monday appointed its Rajya Sabha MP Sushmita Dev and another senior leader from Bengal, Sourav Chakraborty, as the party's Goa unit co-in-charge.
Dev quit the Congress and joined the TMC in August last year.
She was elected unopposed to Rajya Sabha from West Bengal mid-September.
In November, the TMC appointed Mahua Moitra as its Goa unit in-charge.
"Our Hon'ble Chairperson Smt. Mamata Banerjee is pleased to appoint Smt. Sushmita Dev (Hon'ble MP, Rajya Sabha) and Dr Sourav Chakraborty (Ex-MLA, Alipurduar) as the State co-in-charges of the AITC Goa unit with immediate effect (sic)," a statement issued by the party said.
Elections are scheduled to be held in Goa sometime this year.
