After Parliament, the Trinamool Congress is all set to take on the BJP in television studios. The party has appointed four more spokespersons to voice its staunch opposition to demonetisation in news channel debates.

The four appointees will join the party's existing team of media managers led by Rajya Sabha MP Derek O'Brien.

And reflecting party supremo Mamata Banerjee's Delhi ambition, the new picks have been made keeping in mind the Hindi viewership. "We get about a dozen requests everyday from news channels," says a TMC leader.

The new entrants in the team include Saugata Roy and Dinesh Trivedi(both with good command over Hindi) former Congress West Bengal chief Manas Bhuiyan (who recently joined TMC) and Nirbed Roy, another former Congress leader. The party earlier had four national spokespersons — Kalyan Banerjee, Kakoli Ghosh, Mahua Moitra and Sukhendu Shekhar Roy.
