Cong two on capital mission

Calcutta, July 11: Former state Congress chief Somen Mitra and working president Pradip Bhattacharya left for Delhi today fuelling speculation about a change of guard in the party’s Bengal unit.

State party chief Pranab Mukherjee, now the defence minister, had expressed his desire to quit the post after he was elected to the Lok Sabha. Mitra and Bhattacharya will meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi. “They will also meet Pranabbabu and discuss organisational polls,” said a state Congress functionary.
