Trinamool Congress lawmakers, councillors, chairpersons of the youth wings of the party in respective wards and the leaders of other branch organisations of the party in both north and south Kolkata will attend the meetings.
The meetings will also involve discussions on the fate of those councillors, mayor-in-council members and borough chairmen of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) who won’t be able to contest in this year’s polls from seats that they had won in the last one, due to reservations.
Also, party chief Mamata Banerjee will discuss review reports of the councillors in a meeting at Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata on March 2. The reports have been prepared by the specialist team of political strategist Prashant Kishor.
