Trinamool Congress MP Sisir Adhikari loses another post after Suvendu turned BJP
Kolkata/IBNS: Veteran Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP Sisir Adhikari was removed as the party president in district Purba Medinipur, after a tectonic political shift occurred in the Adhikari family late last year.
Somen Mahapatra, a detractor of the Adhikari family, has been appointed as the district president by the Trinamool.
Sisir Adhikari just a day ago was removed as the Digha-Sankarpur Development Authority chairman.
The senior party leader lost the two posts within a month after his son Suvendu Adhikari, a former Trinamool MLA, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
However, Suvendu's father is still in Trinamool.
