Kolkata: Tension is mounting between Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress and its political strategist Prashant Kishor-headed political outfit I-PAC has forced the West Bengal Chief Minister to convene a meeting of the party’s top brass late on Saturday, reported NDTV.

The meeting is the outcome of the rising discontent within the Trinamool Congress ranks with Kishor-founded I-PAC. There have also been reports of a rift between Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek that have been surfacing in the political corridors of West Bengal.
The stories of rifts were followed by a public spat between TMC leader Chandrima Bhattacharya and the I-PAC after the latter alleged that her social media accounts had been “misused” by Prashant Kishor’s team. Kishor’s team promptly challenged the leader’s claim.

“A Twitter account in my name was created by I-PAC before the election. Today it posted something about ‘one person one post’ without my knowledge. I strongly protest against it,” Bhattacharya was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

This was countered by the I-PAC. “I-PAC doesn’t handle any digital properties of @AITCofficial or any of its leaders. Anyone making such claim is either uninformed or is blatantly lying. AITC should look into if and how their digital properties and/or that of their leaders are being ‘allegedly (mis)used’,” Kishor’s team tweeted.
