The meeting began after paying tribute to former West Bengal panchayat minister, Subrata Mukherjee, who passed away recently. Mamata Banerjee addressed the meeting followed by other senior leaders like Sovondeb Chattopadhyay and Subrata Bakshi.

After the meeting, Barma described it as a historical gathering. He said that Mamata Banerjee is the principal face of opposition against BJP now. “She will lead the opposition forces in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. It is a fact that all the opposition forces will have to get united against BJP but that united movement will be led by Mamata Banerjee."

Trinamool Congress’s national spokesman, Derek O’Brien confirmed that the number of members of the working committee will be increased and for that purpose, the constitution will have to be amended.

“Mamata Banerjee will decide on who will be the new faces in the working committee. Now, only the leaders from West Bengal are on the working committee we are expanding nationally now and hence the committee needs representations from other states,” he said.
