The North 24 Parganas district Congress president has allegedly started appointing block Congress presidents, outthrowing the present incumbents in all its 66 party blocks, said a number of the West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee here.

A dozen PCC members from Barackpore, Barasat, Kanchraara and other places had sent a memorandum to the AICC General Secretary Oscar Fernandez in Delhi, alleging that district president Debi Prasad Ghosal had arbitrarily been removing the Centrally-approved present block chiefs while installing his own men.

Such a move of the district president without approval of the AICC was illegal and was in total disregard of the circular issued by the PRO Virendra Kataria from WBPCC for appointment of the block presidents, district general secretary of the party and WBPCC member, Gurupada Biswas observed.

The memorandum urged the AICC secretary for his intervention in this regard.
