Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Thursday announced a major reshuffle in the party's organisation as she gave leadership roles to younger and new faces with an eye on next year's Assembly elections in West Bengal, party sources said.

At a meeting of the party, Banerjee announced a new state committee with 21 members in it and a seven-member core panel, they said.

Besides, the presidents of several districts, including Howrah, Coochbehar, Purulia, Nadia, Jhargram and South Dinajpur have been removed, a senior party leader said.
