Partha Chatterjee, Mamta Ko Rejig Cabinet, TMC’s Dinka; Corruption free governance and decentralization top priority

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Monday that she will reshuffle her cabinet on Wednesday (August 3) – a decision close to the arrest of former minister Partha Chatterjee in the SSC scam.

In a press conference, Banerjee said: “Subrata Mukherjee, Sadhan Pandey are no more. Partha Chatterjee is in jail so I have to do a small cabinet reshuffle. I cannot oversee all the portfolios. Some new faces will come. And some people will be used in the organization.

The Chief Minister also announced that it has been decided to create seven new districts. Without naming names, he asked party leaders to avoid situations that would tarnish the image of the TMC.

Just before Banerjee’s cabinet reshuffle was announced, the Trinamool Congress also announced a reshuffle of organizational positions.

According to party sources, some district presidents have been removed and are likely to get a place in the cabinet. In the case of North 24 Parganas, Partha Bhomik has been removed from the post of party president in Barrackpore, sources told News18, adding that in all likelihood, he will be promoted to the minister’s post.

The organizational changes mean that those who hold important positions in the party will not get a place in the cabinet. Using the same theory, some municipal chairmen have also been removed from the party president positions.

Sanihashish Chakraborty has been removed as party president in Hooghly as he may get a cabinet berth, while Gopal Seth, who was both party president and chairman of Bongaon municipality, has been removed from the former post.

It is clear that the party high command wants decentralization to ensure that organizational workers are not overburdened with ministerial work. TMC sources say that keeping party and government posts separate is in line with the one-man, one-post theory and will also help reduce corruption.

Interestingly, the organization still has no observers. The observers were removed before the elections but the need for them was felt when differences began to arise between party seniors and Abhishek Banerjee.

Sources say that apart from clean government and decentralization, the high command wants the people of the districts to have the final say on the issues of their area. People close to Abhishek Banerjee also said that he believed in the idea of ​​separation of party and government.

New faces who may enter the cabinet include Babul Supriyo, Tapas Roy, and Partha Bhomak.
