Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, who entered Writers’ Building on the plank of Maa, Maati, Maanush, is now on the target of the Opposition for promoting dynasty politics.

Voice of protest has also started doing the rounds in her party, albeit behind the curtains at this stage.

Mamata has anointed her nephew Abhishek Banerjee, who holds an MBA degree, as the president of the party youth wing - All India Trinmool Yuva.

With an aim to challenge the Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's Yuva Brigade during the next Lok Sabha elections, Mamata has formed a special team headed by her nephew.

According to sources, bigwigs like Sam Pitroda, Frahan Akhtar and Leander Paes would act as consultants with Abhishek. The team will soon visit Delhi, Mumbai and other metropolitan cities.

Abhishek holds an MBA degree. His father, Amit Banerjee runs a hardware shop. Abhiskek is considered very close to Mamta Banerjee in comparison to her other nephews and niece in the family.

Some of the TMC members, who would not dare open their mouth in front of the party supremo have started speaking in subdued voice that Didi has started promoting her family members in the party.

In the last Assembly election, Abhiskek was a made in-charge of the party’s cyber campaign, through which party received good response.
