Pranab’s son to contest West Bengal elections


Suri, West Bengal: Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s son Abhijit Mukherjee has quit his job in the Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL) to contest the forthcoming assembly elections in West Bengal on a Congress ticket.

Birbhum is the home district of the Finance Minister and has remained a stronghold of the Congress long after it was replaced by Trinamool Congress Party as the principal Opposition party in the state.

Interestingly, local Trina-mool Congress leaders took exception to the possibility of Abhijit’s candidature, but soon they changed their opinion.
