Kolkata: Within two days of meeting Trinamul supremo Mamata Banerjee at her residence in Kalighat, Behala East MLA Sovan Chatterjee has got back his security cover from her government indicating that his return to the party is only a matter of time now.

The former Kolkata mayor has been provided with the Y-plus category protection by the state government. It includes eight personnel of the special branch of the Kolkata Police who will guard his residence at Golpark and also escort him during his visit.

 

State home department sources, however, claimed that he was given the protection only after reviewing threat perception. Trinamul insiders indicated that the review took place after Chatterjee met the Chief Minister on October 29.

Already four of the security personnel have joined duty since Thursday night. Many of them see the reinstatement of security cover as a gift for  Bhatridwitiya to ‘Kanon.’
