TMC Leader Madan Mitra To Head State Transport Ministry’s New Committee

Kolkata: The West Bengal government’s transport ministry on Wednesday released a notice stating that the Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra has been made the chairman of a new committee it has created, as reported by The Statesman.

The committee has been formed to ensure that the officials of the transport department receive all benefits of ‘Swasthya Sathi (Free mediclaim by West Bengal govt) and other schemes.

The development comes after Mitra’s ‘pack up’ remark which he shared on his social media handle.

Even though the former Transport and Sports Minister of the state clarified that he didn’t mean anything with “pack up”, reports in Bengali media suggest that the party’s decision to give Mitra the post in the new committee was to shun the revolt from another senior leader.

Earlier, when other TMC leaders had rebelled against the party, Mitra, too, had raised eyebrows when he had written “pack up” on his social media timelines. Many felt that the leader was expressing his despair after remaining in the sideline for long.
