TMC MP wants Mamata as PM, Abhishek Banerjee West Bengal CM in 2024

| @indiablooms | 03 May 2022, 09:46 pm

Kolkata/IBNS: A day after Trinamool Congress (TMC) spokesperson Kunal Ghosh expressed his wish to see party's national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee as the West Bengal Chief Minister in 2036, MP Aparuba Poddar Tuesday came out with a different wish.

Poddar said in a post, "I want Didi to take oath as the Prime Minister from RSS nominated President and our youth leader Abhishek Banerjee to take oath as the West Bengal Chief Minister from Jagdeep Dhankhar in 2024."

This comes a day after Ghosh expressed his desire to see Abhishek, who is believed to be Mamata's successor, as the next Chief Minister but in 2036.

The wishes come in at a time the TMC is celebrating its one-year anniversary of returning to power for the third consecutive term in 2021, decimating the might of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Though Mamata stormed back to power in 2021, rumours are rife that the TMC leaders are divided into two camps, one belonging to the supremo and the other to her nephew Abhishek.

In the last winter, the apparent difference between Mamata and Abhishek was noticed when the latter had spoken against the holding of festivals during the Covid-19 third wave even as his own party-led government had permitted.
