This development comes days after he switched over to the party.

“The All India Trinamool Congress under the inspiration and guidance of Hon’ble Chairperson Smt. @MamataOfficial is pleased to announce Shri Pijush Kanti Biswas as the Tripura Pradesh Trinamool Congress State President. We wish the very best to him for his future endeavours” AITC Tripura tweeted.

Biswas, after leaving Congress, floated his own party Tripura Democratic Front (TDF) last year before switching over to TMC.

TMC general secretary and co in-charge Rajib Banerjee said, “We believe our party can bring people together to eradicate the ruling BJP government.”

The TMC first attempted to expand its base in the state under former chief minister Sudhir Ranjan Majumder in 1999 and later in 2016, after six legislators from Congress joined the party, though they moved to BJP the subsequent year.

The party tried to test its fate for the third time in the state after winning Bengal polls last year.
