Trinamool tries to win Sovan back

Trinamool Congress leadership began the damage control excerise on Thursday, a day after party's chief whip in the Assembly Sovandeb Chattopadhyay publicly announced that he was contemplating quitting the party as he was assaulted by members of a rival faction. Panchayat Minister Subrata Mukherjee met Chattopadhyay on Thursday as part of the reconciliation process. It has been learnt that Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim also spoke to Chattopadhay and asked him to settle the issue.

After meeting Mukherjee, Chattopadhay said, "I have to attend the meeting as it was my party's decision. I have not wanted anything more from the party. I just wanted respect in the party."

On Tuesday, a section of Trinamool supporters assaulted Chattopadhay. He later filed a police complaint against his own party workers.
