West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee and prominent election strategist Prashant Kishor on Friday met at Banerjee’s residence at Kalighat in south Kolkata. Trinamool Congress (TMC) is planning to implement the “one-person-one-post” formula from next week.
Party secretary-general Partha Chatterjee had confirmed that this new policy would be implemented across all party levels. Trinamool national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee was pushing for the implementation for a long period of time.
Ahead of the civic polls and elections to Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) the cabinet reshuffle and changes in the organizational structure are the need of the hour.
Kishor’s strategical advice on the cabinet reshuffle will help Mamata Bannerjee. It is likely that young leaders will get more opportunities when the one man one policy will be enforced.
“The changes will take place in view of the civic body election, which is pending, as well as the 2023 panchayat polls and next Lok Sabha election in 2024,” a senior TMC leader

June’s meeting was held at Pawar’s residence in Delhi, which took place after the poll strategist met the NCP chief twice. However, the attendees of the meeting denied putting up the third front leaving Congress behind.
In the recent assembly elections in Bengal, TMC pulled off a massive win against BJP. After the victory, TMC renewed its contract with Kishor’s company Indian Political Action Committee (IPAC). The TMC secured 213 seats while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 77 seats in the assembly elections in Bengal.
