Mitra was not available for a comment but Bose’s son Srinjoy who has filed his nomination for assistant general secretary post said, “Perhaps he (Mitra) has chosen friendship over an election fight. So he has stepped aside.

The father-son duo are thus set to take over the reigns from Mitra’s panel on October 28.

The other members of the Bose panel include Satyajit Chatterjee (treasurer), Debasis Dutta (finance secretary), Samrat Bhowmick (cricket secretary) among others.
