Mamata Banerjee’s resolve will get stronger: Abhishek Banerjee at 21 July rally
TMYC President Abhishek Banerjee had taken up the responsibility to organize the mammoth July 21 rally. Senior Trinamool leaders like Subrata Bakshi, Saugata Roy, Partha Chatterjee, Subhendu Adhikari, Firhad Hakim and Sudip Bandyopadhyay lauded Abhishek’s efforts at different times of the day.
On Tuesday, it was difficult to miss Abhishek working behind the scenes. The only time he allowed himself a smile was long after the meeting had winded up.
Earlier in the day, Abhishek took a dig at CPM in his speech, saying, “A few things can’t be returned: A word when said, a shot when fired, a time when wasted and CPM when they loose an election.”

Attacking the media, he added, “The more you burn iron, it gets stronger. Likewise with Mamata Banerjee. The more you attack her, the stronger she gets. For you can’t see what she is doing. For you there is no Kanyashree, no new employment and no development. But people are seeing it. And they are the ones who will keep her in power.”
Abhishek Banerjee has been the main campaigner in the districts. Moreover, it was the Trinamool Youth Congress that formally organized the rally.

In the evening, in a Facebook post, Abhishek Banerjee thanked all the volunteers and frontal organisations for making the rally successful. “Thank you to Didi for inspiring the Trinamool Congress family to reach greater heights,” he wrote.
